As the new year begins, we look back on the biggest stories in Peterborough over 2015.

The fifth most read story on the Peterborough Telegraph website broke in only the second week of 2015 - as it was announced three nightclubs in the city were set to close.

Despite the news, council leader Marco Cereste said the city still had a good night time economy.

The fourth most read story on the web was a list of food hygiene ratings, released in the summer.

The ratings proved a real talking point for readers, as they were able to compare pubs, restaurants and other venues for their star rating.

Two tragic stories came second and third on the list of most clicked on articles.

The discovery of a man’s body in a river in Werrington at the beginning of December was terrible news for the community.

And Peterborough was shocked following a collision on the A47, which saw one woman killed and another seriously injured. The collision happened as a car had been driving the wrong way along the carriageway.

The most read story of 2015 broke on Christmas Eve, when a bus and car collided, resulting in the bus crashing into an office building in the city centre.

While no-one was seriously injured, 13 people needed treatment following the crash.
