There's a warning the Brexit vote could delay a decision on expansion at Gatwick Airport. Campaigners say the Prime Minister's resignation may well stall plans to make an announcement early next month.

It was previously suggested that ministers could announce a decision on whether to expand Heathrow or Gatwick before the summer Parliamentary break at the end of July.

But David Cameron's announcement that he will step down by October following the Brexit vote could mean a further delay in the process.

Archaelogists from the University of Reading are beginning another dig at the site of what they say is one of Britain's most important - but little explored - prehistoric monuments.

Marden Henge between Stonehenge and Avebury was built around 2400 twenty four hundred BC. It's the second year of a three year project. Researchers hope to find out more about life during the Stone Age.

Somme 100 - The British Army's darkest day

Preparations are underway to mark 100 years since The Somme - one of the deadliest battles in British history.

Relatives, politicians and members of the Royal Family will attend a series of commemorative events in France next week remembering the more than one million men on both sides who were killed or wounded.

The battle, which began on on July 1 1916, was an attempt to break the deadlock during the First World War when soldiers were dug into miles of trenches and ditches.

We speak to: Betty Foster, who was visiting her uncle's grave on The Somme; Alex Churchill, author of 'Somme: 141 days, 141 lives' - and Phil Betts of the Frittenden Historical Society.
