A specialist team of divers and Environment Agency officers have finally managed to raise a narrowboat that capsized in the Thames after breaking free from its mooring in Oxford. The 'One Old Peculier' floated down the River before crashing into Osney Bridge below Botley Road on Monday. She's been there ever since despite numerous attempts to raise her. However the Environment Agency used a crane to winch the boat upright.
Council tax looks set to rise by 3.99% each year for the next four years in Hampshire. It would lead to an extra £41.40 per year for a 'Band D' property this year.
The cabinet at Hampshire County Council has recommended that tax increases by the maximum possible amount to help with severe cuts to the council's budget from the government.
The council has to save £81m this year alone, £54m of which will come from the government's 'rainy day' fund - the Grant Equalisation Reserve.
Almost £240m of savings need to be made by 2019/20 and the council admits it will have to make 'challenging decisions'. Frontline services such as adult social care, police and buses face cuts.

The jury in the trial of a man accused of murdering Hampshire grandmother Georgina Edmonds - has today heard a covert recording of Matthew Hamlen, and his mother, taken while he was being questioned by police. The recording hears him say how he couldn't remember where he was at the time of the murder - but later tells his mother he may have an alibi. Mrs Edmonds was found dead at her home in Brambridge in 2008. Matthew Hamlen from Bishopstoke denies murder. Andrew Pate sends this.
Two of the region's hospitals are trialling a new form of radiotherapy treatment that's less invasive for cancer patients - in an attempt to improve their quality of life.
Doctors at the Oxford University Hospitals Trust and the Royal Surrey County Hospital in Guildford are among 17 places across the country chosen by NHS England to evaluate the procedure's effectiveness.
Medics will still deliver a high dose of radiation but this treatment is said to be more accurate - causing less damage to other areas of the body. Katie Rowlett, has been given an exclusive look at how it works.

It's a real- life Incredible Journey.
Storm the German Shepherd went missing from his home for four whole days - and his owners feared they might never see him again.
And when he was finally spotted by some eagle-eyed dog lovers, he was drifting out to sea off the Sussex coast.
He was monitored by the coastguard - before being plucked from the water by lifeboatmen. Now he's been patched up - and is on his way home.
We speak to Storm's owner Helen Sygrave, Steve Warne from RNLI Hastings and vet Lukasz Zelaskiewicz from Senlac Veterinary Centre in Battle.
