WHILE regular readers of The Hunts Post already know all about their award-winning newspaper, the word was spread a little further than usual last week.

This newspaper's coverage of Pidley-born Charlotte Edwards' successful defence of the Ashes as England women's cricket captain was highlighted in Parliament.

In a Commons debate on Thursday, MP for North West Cambridgeshire Shailesh Vara spoke in response to a fellow member's call for a greater emphasis on women's sport.

Mr Vara told the house: "We need more role models, such as Charlotte Edwards, the captain of the England ladies' cricket team. It is my privilege to have her as a resident in my constituency.

"As my local newspaper The Hunts Post said, she is 'one of the most influential female England cricketers of all time'.

"Long may she continue to be successful, having clinched the Ashes for England in February 2008."
