A soft drink made in the Forest of Dean will no longer be sold by a major supermarket following concerns about child obesity.

Lunch-box sized cartons of Ribena, which is bottled in Coleford, have been banned by Tesco because of its sugar content.

The supermarket giant will continue to sell no-added sugar versions and cordial bottles.

2,000 year old paw print found in Gloucester

These paw prints were made by a Roman cat prowling through Gloucester Credit: Gloucester City Council

The paw print of a cat has been found on a roof tile dating back to Roman times.

A pile of roof tiles was dug up in Berkeley Street in Gloucester in 1969 but the discovery was only made by an archaeologist in June.

The cat is thought to have snuck across the wet clay tiles in Gloucester in about AD 100. The tile in question, a tegula, was used on the roof of a building in what became the Berkeley Street area of modern Gloucester.

What a fascinating discovery. Dog paw prints, people’s boot prints and even a piglet’s trotter print have all been found on tiles from Roman Gloucester, but cat prints are very rare.

– Cllr Lise Noakes, cabinet member for culture and leisure at Gloucester City Council

The discovery is on display at The City Museum and Art Gallery.
