In this week's Newbury Weekly News

In this week’s Newbury Weekly News, Thatcham may finally get a bridge over the level crossing – but at a price, as developers consider a 700-home major development project near Crookham Hill.

In other news, West Berkshire was joined in a show of solidarity after the Paris attacks left 129 people dead on Friday night, observing a minute silence and expressing condemnation of the killings.

Elsewhere, West Berkshire Council has insisted it did everything in its power to stop Bayer leaving Newbury.

Meanwhile, a Special Constable hits out at Thames Valley Police for shattering his dreams of becoming a policeman – all over two bottles of pop.

On the Thatcham pages, the decision on whether to grant planning permission for 'Henwick Park' development has been delayed until December.

In this week’s Hungerford edition of the Newbury Weekly News, bus service ‘lifelines’ are under threat.

Plus, developers may have until December 2 to pull down an unauthorised building or appeal a ruling.

And on the Hampshire pages, two pieces of Purbeck, Dorset marble found over 100 years apart at Silchester’s Roman site are from the same ancient sign, destroyed 2,000 years ago, possibly by Boudica, experts have confirmed.

Our award-winning augmented reality images brings Westminster to life.
