  • A family who live near Ross-on-Wye in Herefordshire have won £61m on the EuroMillions lottery. Sonia Davies (former landlady of The New Inn pub in St Owen's Cross) and her partner Keith Reynolds told the media they'll be sharing their winnings with family and friends. Cue loads of fizzy wine. Loads and loads of fizzy wine.


  • Herefordshire continues to improve its image... this time thanks to a tree resembling Donald Trump's head. The tree, in Glewstone, Ross-on-Wye, previously looked a bit like Elvis. And in case you can't tell the different between a perennial plant and the Republican nominee, the Daily Mail has helpfully published a gallery of pics.


  • BBC's The One Show was broadcast live from the Herefordshire village of Weobley on Wednesday. There was bed-racing, a chat with the butcher, a controversial bit about the local library being run by volunteers and music from Squeeze who played live from the bus stop. If you missed it, you can watch via the BBC iPlayer:
