One of Cambridgeshire's oddest traditions gets under way this morning...
Computer Dating For Cheetahs
Computer dating has been used to match a pair of cheetahs at Colchester Zoo.
The software checks an animal’s genetic history to find the best potential mate for it and it's worked so successfully that a litter of cheetah cubs has been born.
Born at the start of July 2011, the three cubs are all doing well under the watchful eye of their mother and keepers.
Sarah Forstyth, curator at Colchester Zoo said, “This is the pairing’s first successful litter of cubs, and we hope that they will continue to breed successfully in the future to help support the captive population of this species.”.
The first rail freight service from the UK to China has arrived.
The contract of the current Chief Constable of Essex, Stephen Kavanagh, has been extended for a further four years.
A teacher, who worked in Chelmsford, has been charged with multiple offences relating to children.
