Coventry is seeing a wave of new restaurants opening in the former Cathedral Lanes shopping centre. The building is being transformed into the city's new dining quarter, with two restaurants opening in the space of just weeks.

T mobile new plans coming
Mobile phone users could be in line to save hundreds each under new proposals put forward by regulator Ofcom. The telecoms watchdog said it has launched a consultation to ensure fairer, more transparent prices for customers who pay for handsets and airtime within the same contract. This is one of the most common methods for people taking out new phones and allows customers to pay for their usage and device in instalments, often under 24, or even 48 month contracts.
