A bid is in for lottery money to help renovate an important historical site in Berkshire. Founded in 1121, Reading Abbey was one of most important religious houses in Western Europe.

The interviewees are: Matthew Williams from Reading Museum; and Councillor Paul Gittings, Culture Lead at Reading Borough Council (Labour).
Just under 20,000 runners have been out in Reading today at the town's annual half-marathon. The event is now in its 31st year with many competitors raising money for charities. Mel Bloor went to see how they got on.
Thousands of runners will take to the streets of Reading this morning for the annual half marathon. The race starts in Green Park, 250m from the race site at Madejski Stadium. The route will be exactly the same as in 2013.
Starting at Green Park, A33 to Bennet Road, Basingstoke Road to Hartland Road, Whitley Wood Road to Shinfield Road and follow the old route to the Reading University loop. Turning right out of the university the route continues along Christchurch Road to Kendrick Road and down into the town centre.
A left turn takes the course over the Kennet and past The Oracle complex, then right into Minster Street and right into Kings Road as far as Abbey Square where it takes left and passes under Abbey Gate to the Forbury Gardens (half way).
From Abbey Street the route loops round the old Town Hall and into Friar Street, left into West Street and right onto the Oxford Road. Then right into the Tilehurst Road to Lienbenrood Road and Prospect Park before turning left into Bath Road and heading back towards the town.
Another right into Rose Kiln Lane sees the course onto the A33 dual carriageway, it then heads for over a mile towards the Madejski Stadium;
just before the stadium the route takes the customary right into Green Park but only as far as the first roundabout and then returns back towards the Stadium and the finish. Following the Green Park loop the race makes its way up and into the stadium finishing in front of the stands.
The police watchdog spent last night investigating near the scene of a crash that killed two cyclists in Purley on Thames. John Morland, who was 30, and 39 year old Kris Jarvis, died last Thursday.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission has been examining police actions before the incident. A man's charged with causing death by dangerous driving.
The Independent Police Complaints Commission is appealing for witnesses to assist its investigation one week on from a fatal collision in Purley-on-Thames. Last Thursday night a collision occurred on the A329 in Purley-on-Thames, between a black BMW and two cyclists, who died of their injuries.
The IPCC’s independent investigation is examining how police responded in the short time period of less than two minutes between the sighting of the BMW and the fatal collision. The investigation will consider whether police actions had any effect on the events that followed.
Investigators will be in the Purley Rise and Pangbourne areas this evening, carrying out house-to-house enquiries and appealing for any witnesses who may have seen the events unfold.
– IPCC Associate Commissioner Guido Liguori
I would like to offer my condolences to the families of the two men at this very difficult time. As police officers were in the vicinity and sighted the BMW very shortly before the collision, we will be investigating how the police responded to the sighting and whether their actions had any effect on the events that followed. I would urge anyone who saw anything that may assist with our investigation to come forward.”
