After all the hysterical weather-warnings from the Met Office over the last month, here comes the real thing at last. The drenching begins 8pm tonight, with torrential thunderstorms rolling in over the weekend and set to be especially wet on Sunday.

Convoluted legal attacks on pro-Brexit campaigners are backfiring in a big way. Instead of a £20,000 fine being something to fear, it turns into a means of raising money for the cause. Darren Grimes was fined £20,000 effectively at the behest of the EU (on what sounds like very questionable grounds), but this fine fellow now has £42,000 raised to cover it — and there's still a month to go.
Update: he raised nearly £95,000 and totally won his case, being fully exonerated and with the judge ruling there was no case to answer and therefore no fine to pay. The Electoral Commission left the court in disgrace.

Buxton Community Farm saved
Buxton Community Farm has been saved, for now. The local Council still want cash for the site, but it appears that the option of community-ownership will now be given first refusal.
