It has been a busy day of news across Cambridge today so you might have missed the day’s top headlines.
We reported on plans by Cambridge City Council to make Market Square safer amid a rape investigation.
We also brought you the story on fears that Cambridge is being used as a “race track”.
And even covered the application to create a high-end hostel in place of a vacant office.
With that in mind you could be forgiven for missing some of the day’s top headlines.
And, if you did, we’ve got a quick round-up of the latest news:
Cambridge is being used as a “race track”
Cambridge is being used as a “race track” with cars and motorbikes roaring through the city’s streets late at night, councillors have said.
A motion was put forward at a Cambridge City Council meeting yesterday evening (October 21) by Councillor Olaf Hauk, calling on the council to recognise the dangers posed by speeding drivers, and calling for more to be done to tackle the issue.
Cllr Hauk’s original motion had called for representatives from the Highways Authority and police to be brought together by the council to develop a joint strategy to tackle anti-social driving.
The motion was amended to include that the issue is police-led, as well as information about current partnership groups that can help address the issue.

He was released on bail until November 9.
Application to create a high-end hostel
