VIDEO: Life-saving donor's new battle to save her father

A Hampshire woman whose selfless donation of bone marrow saved the life of a stranger is campaigning to raise awareness, after her own father was diagnosed with leukaemia.

Martin Maylam from Petersfield was told he needed to find a bone marrow match just two weeks after his daughter saved the life of a little boy.

Unfortunately none of his relatives are a suitable match, and the family is asking members of the public to register with the Anthony Nolan Trust.

Verity and her father have been telling their story to Fred and Sangeeta.

Two schoolboys have been arrested suspected of raping a young boy in a park.

The youngsters, aged 14 and 15 years, were detained after the child, believed to be aged around 12 years, was subjected to an horrendous sexual attack near two schools.

Bond Brothers has been a familiar sight in Buckinghamshire for more than a century.

The business was originally started by the Bond brothers' grandfather in 1901.

The company even delivered during two world wars, to customers including Sir Winston Churchill.

The recommended retail price of a pint delivered to the doorstep is 70p but with many supermarkets selling four pints for a pound, it's become almost impossible for the brothers to make a profit.
