Holiday of a lifetime for South West children

It's the trip of a lifetime for children with serious illnesses and disabilities - every year the charity Dreamflight takes nearly 200 youngsters to Orlando in Florida, where they visit theme parks and go swimming with dolphins. Among them are children from Dorset and Somerset.

Forget VIPs, they're known as VICs - 'Very Important Children'. Our reporter Lauren Hall went with them to find out how they got on.

More than 120 pub mirrors and glass panes have been sold for £20,000 at auction in Dorchester.

Many were used as props in films and TV programmes but they were put on sale as old-fashioned pubs are no longer popular for dramas.

The auction was held by Duke's Auctioneers, which says there was a lot of interest in the items, with plenty of new buyers coming forward.

It says the total raised "exceeded expectations".
