The Hoff drops in to Bath Christmas Market

Bath's famous Christmas market had a famous visitor on its first day of opening.

None other than David Hasselhof of Baywatch and Knight Rider fame had a look round the German-style chalets yesterday, 26 November. You'd be forgiven for not spotting him though - it appears he went in disguise.

The Hoff was less clandestine when he went for lunch at a local restaurant. He didn't stay in the city though. He had to head for Scotland for his latest role - that of the Hook in Peter Pan in Glasgow.

Police are appealing for information after a woman in her thirties was sexually assaulted while watching Hitman: Agent 47 - at the CINEMA.

A 44-year-old man has been arrested in connection with the incident and another assault relating to the same victim, which happened later that night in Corsham in Wiltshire.

Police want to speak to cinema-goers who went to the 10.30pm screening of the film on Saturday 29 August.

A decision over the favoured site for a new park and ride site to the east of Bath looks set to be delayed after the ruling to propose a "cross-party review of potential sites".

A decision was due to be made last night on which of the three sites Bath and North East Somerset Council would pursue as its chosen option.

The debate has been controversial, with protestors singing in opposition against plans to build the new car park on meadow land near Bathampton.

All councillors will now be called in for a full council meeting to agree the best way forward.
