Argostoli police have arrested two men and a woman for trafficking heroin on Kefalonia. Since August 2020 police estimate the gang's income to have been in the region of 75,000 €.

UK nature projects to be celebrated on Global Rewilding Day

Lake-wading water buffalo in Suffolk, forests of waist-high “wee trees” on Scottish mountain peaks, and even the idea of lynx roaming Northumberland. These are just a fraction of the nature projects being given a push by the rewilding movement in the UK, and which will be marked by the first Global Rewilding Day on the spring equinox on Saturday.

Gigabit broadband: First areas to benefit announced

The government has announced the first stages of its plans to get ultra-fast broadband to the majority of homes in the UK.

Originally it had promised to roll out gigabit-speed broadband to every home in Britain by 2025 but that was reduced to 85% coverage in November.

The first to benefit will be homes and businesses in Cambridgeshire, Cornwall, Cumbria, Dorset, Durham, Essex, Northumberland, South Tyneside and Tees Valley.

The next areas are expected to be Norfolk, Shropshire, Suffolk, Worcestershire, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight.

Remember my Grandma using a crust to clean wallpaper when I was small.
