EU flag remains down
The flags were flying proudly over a North East civic centre last night - but not the European Union flag that has caused so much fuss.

Wear Valley District Council faced criticism for spending £265 to fund a planning application so it can fly its council flag and the European Union flag over the Civic Centre, in Crook, County Durham.

The authority was forced to take down the EU Ring of Stars after complaints from the People's NO Campaign Group, which said it was illegal to fly a political symbol.
