Cllr Knowles confirmed at the same time that he had been told that the closure of the old site would see a joint use by the Ambulance Service with Police at the current Market Harborough Police Station. Bosses from EMAS asked Cllr Knowles for a meeting to discuss his concerns and to outline the plans.

    All across the country Lib Dems gained seats in Thursday's local elections. We actually gained 75 councillors in total and more than any other party including Labour which only managed 59. Four councils were gained - South Cambridgeshire, Three Rivers, Kingston and Richmond. Amazing results!

    Vince Cable wrote, "Today we're enjoying our best set of local election results in a decade."

    Pollsters estimate our share of the vote was 16% with Labour and the Conservatives at 35% each. The Green party also did well and analysts put much of the success of the Lib Dems and the Greens down to being anti-Brexit (as well as much hard work).
