Police officers used sticks to search hedgerows and verges in a quiet country lane near Cheadle.  What prompted the hunt remains a mystery but we can report that teams of officers could be seen scouring the roadside in Draycott Cross Road on Monday evening and Tuesday morning.  We hope to bring you more on this in our next edition.

A crane was used to pull a horse from a stream after it got stuck at a remote beauty spot.  Firs crews from Ipstones and Leek were called to Collyhole Brook near Ipstones on Tuesday after a 25-year-old horse got stuck in a stream.
