Alongside their defence detective work, it was fascinating to observe how Greg and Ravinder offered Lukasz advice without ever instructing him what to do or what to say. Like any other defendant, it absolutely had to be Lukasz who decided how his defence should be run and what he would say in court - even if his lawyers didn't always agree with him. This sometimes fractious dynamic between Lukasz and his legal team became a key element in his story - and it wasn't just on-camera relationships that were effected.

I've Never Met Anyone As Cunning, Deceiving And Remorseless As Josef Fritzl

Can a psychopath of his likes, be held accountable for his horrendous crimes? After dealing with that cold blooded man for so long a time, there´s only one answer for me: Keep him locked up for the rest of his life. And let him suffer like he let his family suffer. Especially as he has never shown any remorse what so ever.

Looking down at people on benefits is unhelpful. It's counterproductive, mean and unnecessary. What families on benefits need right now, in this changing world is love, support and a chance.

May 27, 2013. A date I will never forget. The day I suffered a life threatening allergic reaction known as anaphylactic shock. My throat swelled, my oxygen levels were dangerously low and if it wasn't for the proactive medics around me, I would have died.

'You Need to Get to Nice'

I'm writing this on the plane. Nice is one of my favourite cities, with a setting that has the best of both the mountains and the sea. I've spent happy times there, but my mind is once again drawn to that week in London, almost exactly eleven years ago, when the atmosphere changed from jubilant to terrified.

With Marco gone, and his holiday fling with Laura over, she wasted no time in distancing herself from him, stating the house felt better in his absence. She knows she needs to undo the damage of her miscalculated romp with the dirty mop, and she seems to be taking the born again approach.

Justice For the 96 Who Died at Hillsborough - But Why Has It Taken So Long?

Matt Barbet | Posted 27.04.2017 | UK
Matt Barbet

My Nanna was very worried for her sons, and it took an awfully long time to find out if they were okay (they had tried to phone as soon as possible, but every phonebox from Sheffield to Manchester had a queue). Eventually, word came through that they were, having been in the fateful Leppings Lane end where the crush happened.

London Marathon - Afterwards

Matt Barbet

I managed to grab a word with a few famous faces at the start. Chris Evans was playing it exceptionally cool, while Judge Rob Rinder was casually talking of going sub-three hours. Sprinter Iwan Thomas was a ball of energy. It was rather bizarre to bump into MP Simon Danczuk, who's been suspended by the Labour party, along with his estranged wife Karen.
