Massive theme park scheme faces more delays

It's going to be one of the country's biggest theme parks but the opening of a massive film and entertainment complex has, once again, been delayed.

A planning application for Paramount Park on the Swanscombe Peninsula in Kent will now be submitted next year. If approved, the attraction will not open until 2021, two years later than originally planned.

If the park is built, an industrial estate in Northfleet will be bulldozed. Those who run companies there have formed a group to put pressure on the developers to compensate them and help with re-location.

More than 150 complaints have been received by police investigating the alleged scamming of festival-goers looking to buy tickets to Bestival.

People complained about being left ticketless after paying to go to the festival on the Isle of Wight earlier this month to see acts including Duran Duran and Missy Elliot.

More than 900 people joined a Facebook page titled "Stresstival", with many posters claiming to have been left out of pocket.

Drivers concerned about impact of parking charge hike
