The reigning national road race champion will not ride in the 2014 edition of the race after failing to overcome a bout of bronchitis.
Hope Rollings was given just a 10 per cent chance of survival, after a 20-week scan discovered she had no diaphragm.
Monmouthshire County Council is to switch off its street lights between midnight and 5am as part of a money-saving exercise.
The lights will be turned off from midnight tonight, affecting residential areas in Chepstow.
It is part of a wider initiative for the council to save £9m from its budget this financial year.
It has led to criticism from many locals, who fear turning off the lights will lead to a rise in road accidents.
But the council has defended its decision, claiming the cuts are unavoidable.
– Cllr Bryan Jones, Monmouthshire County Council
The scale of cuts for this year was such that we can't avoid making savings that could impact on the communities we serve. I understand entirely that many people won't like the idea of streetlights being turned off. But we have limited the hours when this will happen and I'm confident that we have done what we can to minimise the impact.
Volunteers from a village in Monmouthshire are trying to crack down on drivers who speed in their local area. Residents from Llanfair Kilgeddin have been given a speed gun to monitor how fast vehicles are going, before handing the information on to the police.
It's the first scheme of its kind in Wales, but some locals believe it's the only way they can slow speeding drivers down. Nicola Hendy reports.
Peter Kennaugh has won the National Road Championships men's title. He cycles for Team Sky.

Some of the world's best cyclists have been making their way through south Wales as part of the British national road race championship.
There's stop-start traffic for seven miles on the M4 Westbound between J23A B4245 (Magor Services) and J25A A4042 / B4596 (Newport/Grove Park Roundabout).
Geraint Thomas is relishing the challenge of a punishing month in his cycling career as the Tour de France and Commonwealth Games lie ahead.
He's part of a 17-strong Wales team for Glasgow next month that also includes the likes of multiple world champion Becky James, world and European team pursuit gold medallist Elinor Barker.
Ahead of his upcoming schedule, he said:
"I am really looking forward to the Commonwealth Games. It's been a while now since I have been racing for Wales, so I am really excited.
"It gives you an extra motivation and an extra hunger this time around to really go there and try to do a good job."
After the nationals - and subject to Team Sky selection - the Tour de France beckons for 28-year-old Thomas.
If he completes the Tour, he will then head straight to Glasgow for prospective medal bids in the time trial and team pursuit.
Thomas will contest Sunday's National Championship road race alongside the likes of Sir Bradley Wiggins and Luke Rowe - Thomas won the title four years ago - before the world's biggest cycling race potentially awaits.
A bout of bronchitis has ruled defending champion Mark Cavendish out of this weekend's event.
He'll be concentrating on getting fit for the Tour de France, according to a team statement.
"The National Championships are always a bit of a lottery," Thomas added.
"You don't really quite know what is going to happen, but I am looking forward to racing around on home roads again."
Olympic greats including Sir Bradley Wiggins, Geraint Thomas and Luke Rowe are set to take part in the British Cycling National Road and Time Trial Championships in Monmouthshire, which gets underway today.
The Time Trial event begins this afternoon, with the men and women's Road Race taking place on Sunday.
This will be the second time in five years that the championships has visited Wales, with the event held in Abergavenny in 2009.
