Hostilities may have resumed between the Tory and Labour front benches but on one issue Notts MPs are planning to work together this week.

Newark MP Patrick Mercer, Sherwood MP Paddy Tipping and Rushcliffe's Ken Clarke have ganged up to try and push through the duelling of the A46.

The scheme to widen the road - also the subject of an Evening Post campaign - has planning permission but is stalling due to a lack of cash.

Paddy and Patrick will team up to lobby new junior transport minister Paul Clarke in the House tomorrow.

They'll be urging central Government to cough up for the plan which could save lives on the Notts road.
