Players aged nine or ten in school year five are being invited to Futsal training on Thursdays from 6:30-8pm at Barking & Dagenham College in Dagenham Road, Rush Green.

With a smaller, weighted ball and a smaller pitch - encouraging better close control, teamwork and possession on the floor - each player will touch the ball many more times during a game of Futsal than they do even in mini-soccer.

If you’re interested, supply your child’s full name and date of birth together with your telephone number and address by phone on (07803) 127559 or via email at info@teamfutsal.com.

It’s £5 per session, and volunteers are welcome.

The iconic skeleton is set to be replaced by a giant blue whale skeleton in 2017, and people on Twitter really aren’t happy about it.

Citizens of New England wished they had temperatures “barely getting above freezing”.

That’s English literature, maths, physics, biology, chemistry, geography, history and languages, if you didn’t know.

But we’re reassured it’s just the way the schools are counted that’s made the difference.
