Fred has the future of photography in his hands...

How many pictures are there of you aged say 10 or under?

Maybe only two or three. But how many photos do you have of your three young children?

Thousands, because it's so easy to snap away with smart phones and smart cameras. In fact there were two trillion photos taken last year - that's more than the entire history of photography.

But how do we store them ? Welcome to the future of photography...

Freedom of Chichester for astronaut Tim Peake

Chichester City Council has voted to confer the Freedom of the City upon astronaut Tim Peake

The council will now be sending a message to Major Peake via the European Space Agency to ask if he will accept the honour when he returns from his six month mission on the International Space Station.

Tim Peake was born in Chichester and attended the city's High School for Boys, which has named its science centre after him. He was also a member of the local air training corps during his formative years in the City. His parents live just outside the City.

He is the first British born European Space Agency astronaut, and in January became the first Briton to take part in a space walk.

The Freedom of Chichester is an honour that was adopted by Chichester in 1901 but has its early origins in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries.

Drones are the future of policing - according to Dorset's Police and Crime Commissioner. Martyn Underhill says drones could revolutionise policing in the same way that police radios did in the 1960s. Dorset currently shares four of the unmanned devices with Devon and Cornwall Police to photograph crime scenes, road accidents and help in the search for missing people.

Fred Dinenage in space! (sort of)

Astronaut Tim Peake has been in space for nearly a month and on Friday he will make his first spacewalk outside the International Space Station.

But you may recall that just before Christmas our very own Fred was privileged enough to visit the European Space Agency - and have a word with Tim just after he landed on the ISS.

While he was there, Fred had a good look around the training facility that Tim himself used to prepare for his six month mission - and even grabbed hold of the controls!

Here's the first of two special reports where Fred also speaks to Jules Grandsire of the ESA, Dr Rudiger Seine, head of training, bio-medical engineer Jennifer Struble and Eurocom's Andy Orth.

Huge new communications tower for Kent?

It's been revealed that an American company is talking to Dover Council about plans to build a communications tower - taller than The Shard - on the Kent coast.

It would stand at the site the old Richborough Power Station and would beam trading data cross-channel to the financial centres of Europe.

But any planning application will not get an easy ride. Iain McBride reports.
