Special lobster Christmas tree helps local fishermen

A seaside town has created a Christmas tree with a twist - it's made out of lobster pots.

The ‘Emsworth Lobster Pot Christmas Tree’ is an opportunity to support the local fisherman as well as contributing to a unique Christmas Tree.

Emsworth is renowned for its fishing families over generations but recent storms have caused terrible damage locally and nationally - during which much of the fishermen's livelihood and equipment was lost.

The town hopes that by replacing some of the items, such as the lobster pots through the Emsworth Lobster Pot Christmas Tree, small businesses will have another fishery to access.

Appeal after pedestrian killed in fatal crash

An investigation's underway after a pedestrian was killed in a crash in Rusthall in Kent.

The collision took place at the junction with Manor Road, at about 4.55pm yesterday.

A white Nissan Primastar van was involved in a collision with a pedestrian – a 78-year-old man from the local area who suffered serious injuries and was pronounced dead at the scene.

The road was closed while investigations were carried out - it was reopened at about 8.50pm.

"It is likely the High Street was quite busy at the time of the incident so we would like to hear from anyone who has not yet made contact.

"This means witnesses to the collision itself or anyone who saw the van or pedestrian in the moments leading up to it."
