Joint effort to combat 'fatal four' in young drivers
Hard-hitting video footage and crash reconstructions are to be used as part of an awareness event for young drivers. Police, in partnership with Staffordshire Safer Roads, the local authority and Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service, are holding a free session for people between 15 and 25 to highlight the dangers of driving at speed, without a seatbelt, while using a mobile phone or under the influence of drink or drugs. The event is Friday 27th November at Cheadle Fire Station from 7pm.
Smiler crash: Human error
Human error is thought to have caused a rollercoaster crash which changed the lives of four young people and dealt a hammer blow to the local economy.
Alton Towers rollercoaster, The Smiler, crashed on Tuesday 2nd June, leaving four young people with serious injuries - two of whom face spending the rest of their lives as amputees.
The Health and Safety Executive's (HSE) investigation into the crash is on-going, but the resort's internal investigation is now complete. The Smiler will re-open in 2016.
Two pints of milk have sparked an unexpected controversy.
Dairyman, Michael Wheat, of Wheat Brothers, has hit back at Cheadle Town Council after it cancelled a weekly order for two pints of milk in a bid to provide best value for the tax-payer. Michael, a third generation dairy farmer, said the council should support local businesses "on principle."

Lev, 33, originally from Forsbrook, began his perilous expedition to walk the Himalayas in Afghanistan before passing through Pakistan, India and Nepal.
