Exciting news was revealed for Borehamwood in early December.

Sky announced it wanted to build a new 32-acre, state-of-the-art TV and film studio in the town.

The new studios, 'Sky Studios Elstree', would house 14 sound stages, bringing 2,000 jobs to the area.

Borehamwood Times:

It's all subject to planning permission but Hertsmere Borough Council has already been working closely with Sky and partners to identify the Rowley Lane site, which is land that has been identified for possible employment in the council's local plan.

Hertsmere stayed blue as Oliver Dowden retained his seat in the General Election. Mr Dowden, who has represented the constituency since 2015, increased his majority.

Two men died five miles apart from each other in what police are describing as a linked double murder.

A 30-year-old Albanian man died on December 19 after he was found in a car boot at Scratchwood Park off the A1. He had been stabbed in the neck and chest.

The following day, the body of a 35-year-old Kosovan man was found in undergrowth in Hogg Lane, near Elstree Aerodrome.

He died from stab wounds to the chest.

Police are linking both deaths.

Two men have been charged with murder in connection with these deaths.

Police in Borehamwood are investigating an arson attack at a former police station.

Numerous fire crews and two incident response units were called to Elstree Way at 7.30pm on December 23.

The whole area was cordoned off as crews dealt with the fire.

Investigations have since taken place with police confirming the cause of the fire was arson. There is an appeal for witnesses.
