Campaigners trying to stop homes built near stately home

Watch a video report by Liz Summers:

Campaigners are trying to stop 60 new homes being built next to a former stately home in Northamptonshire.

Overstone Hall - which is a grade II listed building - has been an empty shell since a major fire in 2001. The developers say the houses would help fund the restoration of the hall but there's been a backlash amongst many in the village.

Scheme launched to keep women offenders out of prison

A new project id trying to keep some women offenders out of prison if they have a mental health issue.

Up until now, nearly three quarters of women in Northamptonshire who'd committed non-violent crimes were were being sent to jail.

It's hoped that with the right support those taking part in the new programme will be less likely to reoffend.
