Safer links: A £105,000 scheme to provide cycle links between shops, businesses and homes on the edge of York has been given the go-ahead. New cycle lanes and footpaths will be created in the Clifton Moor area, alongside zebra crossings, road markings and improved roundabout crossings.

Cafe closure: The National Trust has closed its café in Goodramgate, in York. A spokesperson said: “In the last three years the café has undergone refurbishment and investment to try and improve its success; however this has been to no avail.” The Trust’s shop in Goodramgate is unaffected.
