Stuart Hazell, 37, was a man with a violent and scarred background which is nothing unusual in such crimes. But, tellingly, he also had an addiction to images of children being sexually abused. Police discovered hundreds of such pictures on his computer hard drive. He had also visited websites searching under 'illegal incest pics' and 'sex with young children'.
Churches are not only of interest to worshippers, just as Titian is not only of interest to lovers of Greek mythology. They are the physical expression, in stone and mortar, of Britain's communal past, built not only by the wealthy but also by ordinary local people.
"Teenage stress? Not in my day. We just got on with it!" A common reaction, usually accompanied by a supercilious smile. Or, "Teenagers? They don't know they're born! Wait till they've got bills and taxes and children and no holidays - then they'll know about stress!" More supercilious smiles. But many adults working or living with teenagers have a different narrative. They see symptoms of negative stress: sleep problems, poor concentration and performance, irritability.
In the UK, I feel incredibly lucky to be treated the same as everyone else in this country. Never would I be refused a seat in a restaurant or feel discriminated when applying for a job in London, but last time I visited Kosice I was refused service in a shop simply because I am Roma.
As whistleblowing charity Public Concern At Work (PCAW) describe it, a "culture of silence" continues to reign in workplaces across Britain, despite years of promises from politicians to improve protection and support for those bringing their concerns to light.
It is often a surprise to people when they learn about the organisations out there who are using accounting skills to really make a difference in some of the world's poorest countries.
By giving an act of kindness a name and a setting such as Starbucks cheapens the goodness. All of Tumblr, Facebook and Instagram are abuzz with posts about old weather-beaten homeless chaps in grimy jackets and week old stubbles supping on the cup of coffee. Cue boastful philanthropy.
Sadly, there are millions of humans who want to see rhinos dead. Most of them are in the Far East. Humans who think the horn of the white or black rhino can be ground down and ingested to improve their sex lives, cure cancer or ward off evil spirits. Humans who are prepared to pay heavily-armed poachers to shoot and maim these animals, hack off their horn and ship it half way around the world to China. It's the new drug trade in Africa, a multi-million dollar industry that commands $65,000 a kilo for rhino horn. An average rhino horn is about 5kg. It's not hard to do the maths.
We found that in many cases people felt the police didn't understand mental health or its implications for how to handle an incident. We heard of a lack of empathy, respect or compassion, which has damaged relationships between individuals and the police.
Topless Ukrainian feminists, Femen were taken off a roof by firemen hundreds of feet above a far right demonstration in central Paris this afternoon. Four women, including the groups leader, Inna Shevchenko occupied a balcony above a crowd of hundreds of members of extreme right wing groups to protest against neo-Nazism.
Its clear what we need to do to avoid dangerous climate change; we must wean ourselves off fossil fuels, leave the remaining ones in the ground and make the big switch to renewable energy.
Glasgow, the city in which I grew up, has the largest amount of refugees and asylum seekers in Scotland. Although mostly pushed to the periphery, this new wave of Glaswegians are quietly weaving themselves in to the fabric of the city - and none more so than my friend Farida.
Reform of adult social care has been in the political limelight for many years. This latest announcement makes a firm and very welcome commitment to addressing an age-old issue - but it also opens a floodgate of challenges and fierce debate which will test our government to the limit.
If someone committed a crime against you should they be let off if it had happened a long time ago? Or would you still want to see justice done, no matter how much time had passed? Well today there has been a lot of debate about comments by a leading lawyer who described the investigation of historical sexual offences under Operation Yewtree as the 'witch-hunting of ageing celebs'.
There can be no doubt who is the hardest hit by the cuts - it's disabled people (and that includes many of our children, our parents and our grandparents). Again the question must be asked - did the government know what it was doing when it focused the cuts on social care and benefits - or is this just some thoughtless accident?
Volunteering itself isn't a bad thing, but as with most things there are good and bad examples of it. Examples of how young people can make a positive contribution to tackling poverty, which could guide them to choose the right opportunity to generate the right impact, are often overlooked.
