The Royal Wedding bells have now faded into the distance, but we can’t let it pass without telling the story from a local government perspective – you can’t spell love without local government, after all.

We also bring you the highlights from our Digital in Children’s Services roundtable with TechUK, featuring a discussion of the uses of data and predictive analytics as well as an interview with TechUK’s Local Government Lead Georgina Maratheftis.

Plus our regular roundup of the big stories, including the death of local journalism, preserving Oxford’s legendary shark house. Hosted by Ingrid Koehler and Jennifer Glover.
