Bristol Mayor George Ferguson has announced his new cabinet, which now features members from four political parties.
Bristol is one of the most common cities in Britain to have your smartphone stolen - and many victims are teenagers.
Bristol city centre is to be closed to traffic once a month under a new plan announced today by Mayor George Ferguson.
Bristol's Mayor George Ferguson has been in Brussels today, trying to persuade a panel of judges to make Bristol the European Green Capital for 2015.
It lost out to Copenhagen in last year's competition but, as Caron Bell reports, things look more promising this time round:
Two men from Bristol have been released on bail following their arrest for making alleged offensive comments on Twitter about the murder of a British soldier in London. Complaints were made to police about remarks which were allegedly of a racist or anti-religious nature.
A 23-year-old and a 22-year-old were held under the Public Order Act on suspicion of inciting racial or religious hatred. The arrests follow the murder of 25-year-old drummer Lee Rigby on a street in Woolwich on Wednesday as members of the public watched in horror.

"The men were arrested under the Public Order Act on suspicion of inciting racial or religious hatred. Our inquiries into these comments continue.
"These comments were directed against a section of our community. Comments such as these are completely unacceptable and only cause more harm to our community in Bristol."

George Ferguson is en route to Brussels hoping to convince judges that Bristol should be named the European Green Capital of 2015.
The Mayor left with other delegates from the city this morning to put forward their final bid. The city is up against three others.

There are queues on the M32 coming into Bristol following an accident involving a lorry and a car. One lane is blocked between J2 (Eastville) and J3 (St Pauls) and it's causing congestion to J1 (Hambrook).
There are also queues on the J2 roundabout.
Bristol's Mayor, George Ferguson, and his seven-strong team will set off for Brussels today in their quest to make Bristol the European Green Capital of 2015.
They'll present their vision to a judging panel tomorrow morning (Friday). It's the second year in a row that Bristol has made the finals - narrowly missing out to Copenhagen last time.
Traders in Bristol have delivered a petition to the Mayor asking him to reconsider plans to introduce controlled parking zones across the city. George Ferguson wants to reduce congestion by creating areas where people need to pay for parking permits.
Zones have already been set up in three areas - Kingsdown, Redcliffe and Cotham - and the council says they are a success. But some residents, shoppers and traders are worried the zones could cause more problems than they solve.
