The British Airways i360 pod in Brighton has reached its maximum height for the first time.

Dreamland in Margate will be free to enter from this coming weekend.
The Dreamland Trust is confident that the approach will make the park more accessible to the local community and to visitors.
We hope that a restructured or new operator will also embrace the concept of an amusement park of historic rides, which would create an attraction that is unique in the world, distinctively different to other seaside amusement parks and theme parks in the UK. The current line-up is a firm basis for taking this vision forward, and the Dreamland Trust has always been certain that such an approach, with the right selection of rides and attractions that cater for as wide an audience as possible, will be a viable operation. Nothing that we have seen in the past 12 months, since the park reopened, has changed that view.

The much loved musical Mary Poppins opened at one of the South's major theatres last week. But just getting the spectacular show on stage every night involves slick precision planning and a huge backstage cast that outnumber the performers at least three to one.
So how does such a complex show including dozens of chimney sweeps, a flying nanny and more than a sprinkling of magic manage to go without a hitch? Christine Alsford went behind the scenes to find out.
Saints legend Matt Le Tissier was among former players enjoying a day out at Paulton's Park near Romsey with dozens of young carers. The charity Ex-Saints organised the day to give dozens of children a break from caring for their families - as Sally Simmonds reports.
