1. Farmers, growers, processors and industry representatives are being asked for their views from 31 August for 10 weeks on the role of the Agriculture and Horticulture Development Board (AHDB).

    The AHDB is a UK statutory levy board, funded by farmers, growers and others in the supply chain. As we leave the EU, there is an opportunity to ensure that the sectors that the AHDB covers are as competitive as possible. This review will look at the AHDB’s purpose and priorities, its strengths and where improvements need to be made.

    This is a joint 10-week exercise covering England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. The request for views will close on 9 November.

    I had it very bad in my teens, it felt uncomfortable if my legs weren't moving and twitching whilst I was resting at night....not as bad now but does still occur now and again

    Could you get some cream or gel from the chemist? I think horse chestnut might be the right one. I think Boots the chemist sell a horse chestnut gel for tired legs.

    I believe drinking tonic water gives relief. Not too much gin with it mind!

    No, seriously, the quinine in it should help.

    There's a weird thing on the internet for this! Put a bar of soap down to the bottom of your bed, under the bottom sheet. I asked around and a friend of mine swears by it! I've no idea why this should work but it's cheap enough to try. Probably just don't admit to it!

    That one is for cramp. I used to get it most nights at least once, just had to bend my leg and it would go into a spasm for up to an hour. Or kneel down, made doing the fire a nightmare! I saw the thing about tonic water and decided to try it, I've not had the problem since. I started out drinking about a pint a day (no idea how much I needed and I was desperate!), now I just have a glass about 2 - 3x a week. It seems to work, if I cut out the tonic water,after a week I can feel my legs starting to "tighten" up again.

    I'm on pramipexol from the gp. 2 tiny tablets after tea or else it's like I'm doing riverdance.
    Going to need to go up to 3 or 4 soon. :(

    there is a recognised drug for it usually taken for people who have fits "gabapentin" I have a friend who takes it. Worth taking to GP to see if you can take it occassionally.
