New lights will be switched on tonight to illuminate the Wellington Monument in Somerset.

It's 200 years today since the Duke of Wellington won his most famous victory, defeating Napoleon at the Battle of Waterloo.

The monument will be lit up at ten o'clock tonight to mark the bicentenary.

People have talked to us and said, wouldn't it be nice if you could light the monument again.

We thought this is the perfect opportunity, let's see what we can do and we've made it happen.

It is great news for the monument and it means that those lights will be there to mark other special occasions as well and hopefully raise the profile of the monument too.

Work starts today on a £3.8 million project to repair an historic house near Bath.

The National Trust had to take action after water started leaking through the roof of Dyrham Park, putting the 17th century building and collection at risk.

The lead roofing and slates will be replaced throughout 2015 and visitors will be able to watch the work in progress.
