More news, no ads


A quarter of a century as an independent county is being celebrated in Rutland.

Today marks the 25th anniversary of Rutland regaining its status as an independent county, as well as the formation of Rutland County Council as a unitary authority.

Rutland was a district of Leicestershire from 1974 until 1997, regaining its independent status only after a long-running campaign by councillors and residents.
