If he wants a more equal and a fairer city as he campaigned
on then he has to refuse to make these cuts, services people in this

left derelict and people get so disheartened that's when problems

Two international rugby stars - the Vunipola brothers -
returned to their first rugby club today to thank them
for kick-starting their careers.Mako and Billy answered questions
and then led a training session at the Thornbury Rugby Football Club.
That was where their talent was first spotted.
Thornbury were probably the first club to give us that platform
to push on to higher and the good things and it's always nice to come
back and show our face and the fact that they'd played a big role
It's good because they are coming back to their old team and he's
really inspiring me to be an England player.
We are both very proud of the boys doing this and giving something back
to the community as a thank you and make people happy.

To find and keep one, would-be code breakers need to study
paintings at a local arts centre which have encrypted
The gold objects are worth a thousand pounds or more each!
Time for a weather check - here's Bee Tucker!

and it's been mild and as it heads through tonight, we will
keep quite a lot of cloud cloud, it will tend to lower so we'll see
perhaps some mist, some hill fog, perhaps a bit of drizzle, too.
Temperatures similar to last night, many places getting down as low
as six or 7 degrees and that does mean, tomorrow, quite a grey start.
