What’s in the Chad this week?

THE latest edition of the Chad hits the shelves on Wednesday morning and has even more local news, entertainment and sport, as well as some fantastic deals for readers.

This week’s top story in Mansfield is about the launch of a campaign for road safety measures to be introduced on a dangerous section of the A60 after 24-year-old Luke Winter, from Langwith, became the road’s latest victim last week.

Both Mansfield and Ashfield editions also feature the start of a murder case at Nottingham Crown Court, as a man accused of killing housing tenant John-Paul Johnson, from Stanton Hill, goes on trial.

Other top stories in Mansfield include news of a firearm found on a town estate which could have been used in an attempted armed robbery and the long-awaited arrival of A Level results for thousands of students.

In Ashfield, there is also news of major proposals for a £7.5m silica sand quarry to be built on the edge of Kirkby and Sutton.

There is another chance to vote from the shortlisted candidates in this year’s Miss Mansfield competition and enter our Perfect Pets competition.

Our freshly designed paper includes regular features looking back on what was making the news 10, 25 and 50 years ago, a round-up of the late chemists available in the area and a tip of the day.

Also, look out for our report on cases completed at Mansfield Magistrates’ Court, TV columnist Tony Spittles and a gardening column.
