As we roll into 2018, we have taken a look back – in pictures – at what the news brought us during the last year.

While there were plenty of sad moments not least nationally – with terrorist attacks in London and Manchester and the Grenfell Tower tragedy – and locally with lives lost on our roads, we have selected some of the happier times enjoyed by people in Saffron Walden and its beautiful surroundings.

Whether it was the time a bus took a wrong turn and ended up in a muck heap, or the more recent snow, there have been light-hearted moments in the news.

This was a difficult task; with so many great stories in each edition it was hard to pick just one picture from each month, but that is what we have done.
