A much-loved Derby pub in one of the city's oldest buildings has been described as a "ticking time-bomb" after a fire that could see it closed over the busy Christmas period. Smoke began billowing from The Abbey, in Darley Street, Darley Abbey, at around 4.15pm on Friday, December 8. A fire crew from Nottingham Road was called out to a chimney fire and arrived at the pub at around 4.30pm. They used chimney rods to tackle the blaze.
They are not quite Open All Hours but the proprietors of Burton’s new beer bottle shop, Brews of the World, are cheerfully evoking the memory of Ronnie Barker’s classic grocer Arkwright with what they hope will become their trademark brown work coats. Chris McCormack and Robin Ludlow have opened the shop in Station Street, taking a first step into business and being up and running in good time for the Christmas market.
Ashbourne racing driver Sam Randon is hoping to make the step up to driving a ferocious 4.7-litre Maserati in next year’s British GT Championship. Randon tested the big beast at Donington Park last week and has impressed the new team looking to enter the championship – they are looking for an up-and-coming young driver to pair with a more experienced racer.

How about they tell supermarkets to stop selling stuff at less than a pound a pint, then?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
