Restoration of Donald Campbell's Bluebird nears completion

In 1967 Donald Campbell tried to break the world water speed record on Coniston Water in the Lake District. The attempt cost him his life.

18 years ago the wreckage of his boat, Bluebird, was recovered.

Since then a team has been using some of the original parts to revive the craft. The final phase is nearly complete.



Wintry weather is here to stay.

The Met Office have enough confidence in this that they have issued an advanced weather warning for snow for TUESDAY next week.

Showers or longer periods of snow will affect eastern parts of the UK during Tuesday.

There is the potential for travel delays on roads, with some stranded vehicles and passengers, as well as delays or cancellations to rail and air travel.

Some rural communities could become cut off. Power cuts may also occur and other services, such as mobile phones, may be affected.
