Louis Smith wins silver!

Louis Smith wins silver for his pommel horse routine at the Olympics today.

The Blue Boar was packed as villagers and the attending media, which included the Evening Telegraph, Look East and Radio Cambridgeshire had just watched a perfect routine from Louis and waited for the result

After a few nervous moments the score appeared, Louis had scored 16.066, the same as the Krisztian Berki but the Hungarian had just nipped the gold due to a higher execution score.

Just to get to the Olympics you have to be top of your game, to get a medal at this level is something to be commended. A fantastic result for Louis.

Eye Green Esso out of fuel as panic buying grips the City


Eye Green Esso ran out of fuel last night. As stocks dwindle across Peterborough a compound effect of one station running out of fuel forcing people onto the next nearest station continues.

The panic has been caused be Unite whose drivers are threatening to strike. Although they have said there will be no strike before Easter, as they have to give a weeks notice, conflicting information from the government has meant people filling up unnecessarily.

As I was at Eye station people were still driving in, one couple towing a caravan said they were so low on fuel they didn’t know where to risk next. Nearby Texaco still had unleaded left but was out of diesel last night.
