Birthday treat: Luke McCormick, seen here with fiancee Naomi Richards ,was released from prison to spend time at his son's birthday party

Birthday treat: Luke McCormick, seen here with fiancee Naomi Richards ,was released from prison to spend time at his son’s birthday party

A drink-driving footballer who killed
two young boys when he sped into their family car has been let out from
prison for his son’s birthday treat, it was revealed today.

Shamed Luke McCormick’s temporary release from jail sparked fury from the family of Arron and Ben Peak, who died after the ex-goalkeeper ploughed his Range Rover into their car.

He was spotted outside prison, dressed in casual jeans and zipped jacket and, according to The Sun, went to his three-year-old’s birthday party dressed as Batman.

Following the gathering, with friends and fiancee Naomi Richards at Woolacombe Sands Holiday Park in Devon, the paper said he then went to a club.

Ben and Arron’s mother Amanda, 34, from Partington, Manchester, told The Sun: ‘It upsets me so much. He can have a birthday party playing dress-up at the seaside — something we’ll never do again.’

McCormick was sentenced to seven years and four months in prison after admitting two counts of causing death by dangerous driving and driving with excess alcohol following the crash in June 2008.

McCormick had been drinking all evening at a former team-mate’s wedding and had only two hours’ sleep the night before.

He was twice over the drink-drive limit and travelling at 97mph.

Phil Peak and his sons had been on their way to the Silverstone motor racing track for a day out together — a treat they had been anticipating for many weeks.

Arron,10, and Ben, 8, were killed in the accident, which also left Phil with fractures to his neck, back and ribs. His spinal injuries were so severe that he will never fully recover: Amanda is now his full-time carer.

McCormick, who played for Plymouth Argyle, is due to be released this summer, after serving just half his sentence.

It is understood release on temporary licence is used to prepare prisoners for their eventual release from custody, and is said to help to reduce the chance or re-offending by setting up appropriate employment and rehabilitation work in the community, and maintaining family contact.

A Prison Service spokesperson said: ‘We do not comment on individual prisoners.

‘Prisoners may be released on temporary licence providing they meet strict criteria and pass a rigorous risk assessment.

‘Only those assessed as representing minimal risk of escape or risk of harm to the public are eligible.

‘If prisoners breach their licence in any way, they will be subject to disciplinary proceedings and are likely to be moved to closed conditions.’

Not only was the initial sentence a complete slap in the face to this devastated family but letting him out to attend his sons birthday party is just beyond a joke. It’s time celebrities, especially footballers, were treated equally in the eyes of the law. This child murderer should have been given at least, AT LEAST 25 years without chance of parole.

Yet again the Judicial Rulers of this country pander to the ‘rights’ of a drunken killer, letting him out to enjoy his son’s birthday party. Oh Great! Lucky him – I bet Mr Mrs Peak would love to see their boys once a year for their birthdays too. But of course they can’t; a drunken footballer who thought he was better than anyone else, proved he was just a fool and killed their boys. McCormick deserves to miss every one of his boys birthdays for the rest of his life, just so he can start to understand what devastation he has caused to the Peak’s

This terrible crime deserved far more than a seven year sentence. There does seem to be some misunderstanding, though, of what it means. As others have pointed out, a sentence will last for the duration set by the court. If he’d got 14 years, then he’d have spent the first seven in prison, and the rest on license. Prison is meant – rightly or wrongly in people’s eyes – to encompass both punishment and rehabilitation. Sometimes, the punishment part just does not seem long enough.

Pat, Wilts 17:20…are you serious? The Peak family should “behave like adults and be gracious”….The Peak family have displayed nothing but huge dignity throughout a tragic and totally preventable selflish act that this guy did….he wasnt thinking of his son when he got behind the wheel was he?! Your remarks are nothing short of callous! And 7 years for this death and devastation is shocking….there are no words!

Disgusting what he did to that family! He should have got at least double the sentence for what he did….This is not justice!

How utterly appalling. This man took away their family forever and he gets to go to his own child’s birthday party whilst a PRISONER? The justice system needs an urgent review to stop any and all days releases NOW.

why does our stupid justice system give out sentences only to be halved, wish i could buy everything at half price

The justice system in this country is a sick joke.

The government is just not interested in in any form of justice its their policy to allow criminals to get away with murder.When you have a PM like Cameron who doesn’t know the price of a pint of milk ,how do you expect him to know about victims pain.he’s more concerned about his ratings than his duty to this country.Britains decended into a state of government controlled liberalism that is destroying every thing it should be defending.This man will never be able to measure up to the image they tried to make for him.he is so far out of touch he may as well be from another planet.

I feel so sorry for the family I just cannot begin to imagine the hurt they must feel, he should serve his sentence in full no priviledges I think he got off too lightly.

  • Local MP says the assessment system ‘a shambles’

A man who is suffering from horrendous blood clots and open ulcers has lost his disability benefits – after job centre doctors labelled him fit for work.

James Major, 33, struggles to walk, and has been told by specialists at two hospitals he would be risking his life if he went back to work.

But the fisherman has had his benefits stopped after the job centre in Grimsby, decided he should go back to work – despite the huge open sores on his legs.

His MP, Austin Mitchell, has labelled the assessment system “a shambles”.

James regularly has to travel to London for specialist medical care and has been told by professors at both Guy’s and St Thomas’ Hospitals that he is unfit for work.

He now claims he is now in a no win situation where if he returns to work he will be risking his life.

He has been brought back to land from his job at sea twice since 2010 as a result of his condition, and each time, doctors said his life was in grave danger.

The father-of-three said: ‘The ulcers on my legs started three years after I scratched myself on a cement mixer.

‘The cut got infected and I ended up with blood clots in my legs and lungs. I was in hospital and also got pneumonia and nearly died.

‘I started claiming sick benefit because I obviously couldn’t work.
After this I went for a medical at the Job Centre and failed it, but the doctor there said I was fit enough to work. At the time I could only walk with crutches.

‘I was told that I would have to claim Job Seekers Allowance (JSA).
But when I went to sign up for JSA, the staff there said I was clearly not able to work so I couldn’t claim.

‘I didn’t have a choice but to go back to sea.’

But being on his feet all the time only worsened his condition, and he went on to develop septicaemia.

After his second dash back to land, he tried to claim again, but was told the same as he was the previous time.

‘I was advised to take legal action because of the situation and we won at a tribunal.

‘I was ecstatic and we also got some money backdated.’

Although the situation was resolved for a few months, Mr Major then had to go for a routine medical review which once again deemed him fit for work.

He added: ‘But I failed the medical and I am now back at square one.
I now have to appeal again like the first time round.

‘There needs to be a change in the way the system is run because I now have the choice of either not going to work and not be able to live or go and risk dying.’

Austin Mitchell, MP for Grimsby, said the ESA assessment system is proving to be a “shambles”.

He added: ‘I would advise this gentleman to appeal the decision and to get in touch with me as soon as possible so that I can advise him.

‘A lot of appeals against ESA are being successful, which suggests there is something wrong with the assessment system.

‘The problem is that even once the ESA has been granted, people are having a long wait for the money they are entitled to.’

A spokesman from the Department for Work and Pensions, told the Grimsby Telegraph: ‘We
shouldn’t automatically write off a person’s ability to work, solely on
the basis of a health condition or disability.

‘That’s why the Work Capability Assessment doesn’t focus on a
particular diagnosis, but on the actual abilities of an individual, and
whether that person – with the right support – could undertake suitable
work.

‘People who are too sick or disabled will continue to receive our
unconditional support, but those who are able to work will get
specialist help through the Work Programme. Customers unhappy with the
decision made can appeal.’

Absolutely shocking. ATOS again by any chance? The people with no medical experience??

This is all i have heard for months now . since this system was brought in and changed . lots and lots of people been thrown off the sick who are really ill and given no money for two months . what is wrong with them they can’t see these people are genuinly ill . and penniless . how much longer can it go on before they start killing themselfs in droves because someone can’t get the system right . i have witnessed first hand at the devistation of 5 people been treated like this who are very ill .

Over half the people I sign off for long term work, CAN GO TO WORK! Maybe not in a heavy manual job, but yes they can pick up a phone, yes they can do all sorts of jobs. Its just that they don’t WANT TO.
Thats the benefit culture this country has created and the reason why I left the country for Australia.
And if I stated the obvious to the patients in questions, well I would be getting complaint after complaint, therefore most GPs just sign people off, as its the easiest thing to do, most GP’s won’t admit it.
Personally I don’t think your GP should be involved in anyway shape or form in signing you off. It should be an independent, who would have no connection with you which would mean there is no obligation to give the patient what he wants for fear of reprisal.
The country is being ruined by lazy, council house, multiple children with different fathers, feckless chavs-and most people know it.

Isn’t this what the majority of Mail readers wanted?
- nh, Ladapeyre, France, 01/5/2012 07:22 No, it’s not. We just want the people who cheat to have their benefits cut! Like a guy I know who’s barely worked, is in his late 40′s is a keen cyclist – cycling hundreds of miles, 70-100 in just a day, but has a back that is so painful he can’t work!! Not this poor man, and hundreds like him who genuinely need both medical and financial help.

I am too sick and disabled to work. After 25 years of having a chronic illness I was forced to give up work in 2005. It took me 5 years to get DLA. That came up for renewal in October last year and was stopped. I am appealing the decision and now have to go to a hearing on June 29th. The DWP have requested my medical records from Doctors and Hospitals, thats a laugh, cos the NHS have no tests to diagnose M.E., (thats what I have) treatments or help. So what is going to show in my records? The DWP love to point out that I hardly ever go to my G.P. My G.P.has replied that there is nothing they can do for me, that I am aware of that, so constant visits are useless. Job centre staff have told me “if you have worked before, why can’t you work now? You need to see our Psychiatrist.” I have been told by JC staff that I am obviously unfit for work. The illness means that I have swelling of the brain central nervous system, I am in constant pain, exhausted all of the time. The system is unfit

Atos are not fit for purpose.The assessment is score based .If you get a score of 15 in any assesment field ie physical or mental health you are deemed fit for work.
Many of the questions , if answered yes have a score of 15.So answer just one question with a yes means you are fit for work, even if every other question is a no.
Some questions are lower scores, but answer yes and if your accumalative score is 15 , you are fit for work!
GP reports are not requested , nor medical evidence taken into account. Can you imagine the cost of requesting reports etc.
Also the back log means money is delayed and then delayed longer if you appeal.
The goverment are endorsing this inadequate system , leaving people in a vulnerable situation.

Hmm, curious story. what is the man’s long term prognosis I wonder…because you can work with ulcers he’d just have to have them dressed properly. Is he saying he can never work again?Because that would be nonsense. That said, I really do think that all those with ‘depression’ and a bad back are those on the disability list that should be targeted first….

Cases like this are just the tip of the iceberg. If these idiot doctors cannot see the difference between somebody suffering from a serious disease like this one and somebody who is truly fit to work, then what hope is there for the thousands of people who have serious psychological and psychiatric disease, and for those with hard to diagnose diseases caused by spinal problems.
Only those who have at some time or another suffered from these conditions will appreciate quite how inhumane this approach to the sick on invalidity benefit is.

Meanwhile, people who are so badly disabled that they can only walk a few yards without getting breathless are photographed sliding down a waterslide whilst on a foreign holiday, refereeing an amateur football match or digging up their garden. How is it that they are deemed to be unfit for work when this man is not, despite his potentially life-threatening condition ?

Sadly – when the disability system is abused by so many unworthy people taking advantage; some people who are deserving and qualify for benefits are disadvantaged.

  • 99% of 630 pupils at Berkshire school class English as ‘additional language’

A Muslim faith school has revealed that less than one per cent of its pupils class English as their main language.

Of the 630 youngsters at Iqra Slough Islamic Primary School in Berkshire, just ten are non-Muslim and more than 99 per cent class English as an ‘additional’ language.

The school had faced educational meltdown 18 months ago after a bad Ofsted report, but is not ‘making good progress’, as bosses have claimed that ‘faith has paid off’.

The school’s board of governors’ chairman, Zafar Ali, said he hoped their improving Ofsted results would see more parents of non-Muslim children put their names down to attend.

Iqra Slough Islamic Primary is thought to have one of the lowest proportion of English-speaking students in the country.

In Bradford, a similar picture is painted at Bradford Moor Community School, where less than one per cent of pupils speak English as their first language.

Across the same Yorkshire city, just 26 of 700 students at Byron Primary School in Bradford speak English as their first language.

The school faced educational meltdown 18 months ago after Ofsted gave it poor marks following an inspection.

In a bid to beat the ‘problem school’ label, it went into the ‘special measures’ category in 2010 and the local education authority tried to sack the entire board of governors and replace them with an Interim Executive Board.

But Education Secretary Michael Gove refused to let this happen and backed the governors once he had assessed the evidence.

Headteacher Gareth Thomas was recruited 18 months ago and some teachers were allowed to leave.

Ofsted inspectors visited the school on March 14th and sat in on 30 lessons involving 24 teachers.

In their new report they say ‘From children’s low starting point in reception they are now making good progress. The progress accelerates as they move through the school.’

However the report warned ‘The school is not outstanding as a result of some remaining inconsistencies in teaching and pupils’ attainment, particularly in reading and mathematics.’

The school, sponsored by the Loughborough Trust, emerged from special measures in March and is set to become an academy this year.

Mr Ali said ‘This is a wonderful report. We were confident we would prove to everybody that this is a good school with a sound future.

‘Perhaps we can now nail the myth that Muslim schools are subversive religious madrasas in disguise. We are a good school with superb teachers, and parents have put their faith in us.

‘Yes, we are a faith school, but there is no brain-washing, no militancy and no problems.’

So sad.

Steve, Wiltshire and thommo Solihull,
I can’t speak for Spain but here in France all the English children I have met in France are speaking excellent french within a year, mainly because everyone around them speaks French, so they have to. The problem is that immigrant children in England don’t need to speak English because they have so many classmates who speak the same language as them and don’t/can’t mix with English kids.

Most ex pats in Spain put their children into Spanish schools and they become fluent in Spanish after a short while.
This refutes what some are writing here.

Speak English – our language is wonderful. It’s blatantly ridiculous that one would use English as a second language when one resides in britian !

Nice! No wonder britain is in a mess – this is just not practical. For people that don’t speak anything but English (because they live in England ) how on earth do we conmunincate ! Multicultural society is a nice idea – but just is not appreciated by most realists !

Why is this allowed to go on? This is an English speaking country. Where do they plan to get jobs when they eventually graduate? This is so wrong on so many levels.

Absolutely disgraceful…………………………. disgraceful.

Oh come on, IT’S A MUSLIM FAITH SCHOOL, of course they are mostly muslim. It’s like going to an English school in a foreign country (of which there are many!) and saying OMG LOOOK, THEY’RE ALL ENGLISH! WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT? 90% OF THEM ARE FOREIGN!

Even if English isn’t their first language it doesn’t mean they can’t speak it to a suitable degree, however these figures are quite frankly staggering.

Ofsted?

  • Terrified Emma Frost, from Clacton, Essex, never informed on her father. ‘I thought no one would believe me’ she says
  • Emma, now 22, is speaking out to help other victims of sexual abuse

A daughter forced to act as her father’s ‘wife’ has waived her right to anonymity to help other abuse victims. Emma Frost, 22, was left devastated after suffering a decade of sexual abuse at the hands of her father.

Now, after seeing him jailed for life, she is taking the brave step of sharing her story in the hopes she can help others who have suffered a similar plight.

Emma, from Clacton, Essex, says: ‘I stayed
silent for years because I thought nobody would believe me.

‘Your
parent is the person you are supposed to turn to for help, but he was
the one abusing me. I felt trapped and it tore me apart.’

Christopher Frost, 45, began abusing his daughter when she was nine years old.

‘I remember the first time I was watching TV in the lounge when he came in and sat next to me for a cuddle. But he had a towel in his hand and draped it across our laps.

Afterwards her dad told her that was a
‘special cuddle’ – something that would go on to happen more and more
frequently over the next few years.

‘I
knew it was wrong and I hated it, but I didn’t feel able to tell anyone
so instead I started releasing my anger by playing up at school.’

Eventually unable to cope with her worsening behaviour, her mum put her into care in 2001 weeks before she turned 12.

Emma, pictured as a child with her sisters, says the sexual abuse from her father started when she was nine. 'He called it

Emma,
pictured as a child with her sisters, says the sexual abuse from her
father started when she was nine. ‘He called it “special cuddles” and it
began happening more and more frequently,’ she says

‘They didn’t understand what was
wrong with me so my family just thought I was out of control and a
nightmare. They couldn’t cope so I had to go.’

Life in the children’s home was tough and Emma had no visitors apart from her father.

‘People can’t understand why I let him visit me, but without him I had nobody. I was just a frightened little girl.’

Every few months her father would take her into town and tried to win her trust back by buying her cigarettes and alcohol.

When Emma turned 15, her father came
to visit with the news that her mother had left him and asked Emma if
she would like to leave the children’s home and come to live with him.

As a result of the sustained sexual abuse, Emma's behaviour worsened - and her mother, unable to cope, sent her to a children's home

As a result of the sustained sexual abuse, Emma's behaviour worsened - and her mother, unable to cope, sent her to a children's home

As a result of her father’s abuse, Emma became
unruly. Unable to cope, her mother sent her to a children’s home, aged
just 12. Her father was the only one to visit and, when he split from
her mother, he persuaded Emma, pictured here in her teens at the height
of the abuse, to move into his house where he would rape her

‘Naively
I thought anything was better than the children’s home. I also hoped he
had changed as it had been more than three years since he had touched
me,’ she says now.

In December 2004 Emma moved in to her
father’s home. At first, Frost did not touch his young daughter.
Instead, he insisted the teenager was to be responsible for all the
housework.

‘He said if I
wanted to stay I had to do all the cooking and cleaning. In effect I was
taking on my mum’s role in the house,’ she says.

A few weeks after she had moved in, Emma came home to find Frost drunk. Enraged, he shouted at Emma for leaving him on his own.

The
next morning, he came to Emma’s room to apologise for losing his
temper, and offered her a bottle of Bailey’s to make amends.

Frost
began pouring his young daughter large glasses of the liqueur. Before
long, Emma was blind drunk and overwhelmed by nausea.

She
fell asleep on her bed and awoke to find her father touching her – but
she was too trapped in her drunken stupor to scream or move. When she
finally came around, she began piecing together the harrowing events.

‘I
confronted him but he denied it and said I must have been dreaming. But
just days later I woke up to find him touching me again and I lashed
out.’

Emma was so frightened that she head-butted her father.

His reaction was to warn her angrily
that if she ever lashed out against him again, he would take her back to
the children’s home.

Terrified Emma felt she had no choice but to comply.

By
now, her father’s behaviour had grown yet more twisted. He had started
calling Emma by her mother’s name, and would force her to serve him.

One night in January 2005 he made his daughter get out of bed at one am to cook him a roast dinner.

While she was peeling the vegetables she saw he was lighting candles in the sitting room.

Then he laid a blanket on the floor and called her in to join him. Despite her horrified pleas, Emma’s father raped her.

When it was over he ordered her to continue cooking – and then forced her to sit opposite him to eat the meal.

‘I knew then that it was some sick fantasy that I was his wife and we were having a romantic night, I felt sick but had nowhere to turn, I’ve never been so afraid.

That night she was forced to sleep in his bed with him. Life at home became a living hell as the abuse continued.

Against all odds, Emma managed to enjoy brief moments of normality by having secret boyfriends.

‘Even though I was being abused, having real boyfriends was my way of not letting dad own me. It was a way of feeling normal,’ she says.

Emma was working in a chip shop to raise money to escape when she met Graham Brett, 30. They started dating in secret. But one day, Emma’s father followed her when she left the house and confronted them.

‘He started screaming at me that I was a slag. Graham thought he was just an over protective dad.

‘How could I tell him the truth, that he was jealous of him for being with me?’

Foster dragged his daughter home, where he flew into a rage, smashing plates on his head and shouting: ‘Look how much I love you Emma.’

‘I was just shouting at him that it was wrong and he was my dad, he wasn’t supposed to be doing these things to me,’ Emma says.

In the aftermath of his rage, Frost begged his daughter for forgiveness before pleading with her to have sex with him one more time.

‘I was so revolted that I turned away because I thought I would be sick. He was begging me not to leave.

‘And despite my desperation to escape, I was already thinking I had nowhere to go except the children’s home.’

Emma kept in contact with her boyfriend Graham and a few months later fell pregnant.

As her father had undergone a vasectomy, Emma was certain the baby was not his.

When she broke the news to her father, Emma says he broke down in tears, asking his daughter if she was going to leave him.

But
shockingly, even now the nightmare wasn’t to end. Emma’s boyfriend
Graham, who was still unaware of his girlfriend’s hellish situation,
lived with his mother.

When
Emma gave birth to a baby daughter nine months later, she had no choice
but to return from the hospital to her father’s house with her newborn.

‘I hated him holding her, but I never left them alone for a second,’ she recalls now.

‘Even if I went to the toilet I took her with me.’

Emma has managed to find happiness with partner Graham Brett, with whom she now has two daughters. 'They have shown me what a real family is,' she says

Weeks later Emma was given a council flat that she planned to share with Graham.

Soon afterwards, in October 2009, Emma’s mother made contact. Emma agreed to meet her – and in an emotional confession, she told her mother everything that had happened.

Emma’s appalled mother urged her to call the police. 

‘Mum was devastated, she had no idea but I wanted to be sure the rest of the family believed me too so I tried to record him admitting it on my phone,’ she says.

Next, Emma told Graham. ‘He wanted to go straight round but I didn’t want dad running away before he could be properly punished.’

A police investigation saw Foster arrested. The trial started on 17 October 2011 and Emma, who had since given birth to another daughter, was called to give evidence from behind a screen.

The jury at Ipswich Crown Court found him guilty of four counts of rape, five offences of indecent assault, sexual activity with a child, and causing a child to engage in sexual activity.

Judge Rupert Overbury told him: All these offences were calculated and planned. The effect of your offending is incalculable.’

On 16 December last year Christopher Foster was sentenced to life imprisonment with a minimum term of ten years and ten months. His name was added to the sex offenders register indefinitely.

Emma, who is studying for a degree in
psychology so she can help other victims of abuse, said: ‘ I was relieved but I will have the memories forever. Graham and my daughters have shown me what a real family is. I suffered in silence for too long and I want to help other young women. My psychology degree will help me do that.

As part of her mission to raise awareness and help other victims of abuse, Emma is preparing for a sponsored walk to raise money for the Phoenix Post, a support community campaigning against childhood abuse. She will walk 26 miles on 16 June.

What a beautiful and strong woman!
I relied heavily on my parents love, support, and advice as a teenager, both her parents weren’t there for her and yet she turned out as strong a she did! Good for you Emma. All the best to you, Graham, and your liittle girls. You deserve happiness.

God bless this young woman and her courage!

Thank you for telling us your name. There is nothing for you to be ashamed of. Victims of rape, we need to learn to stand up and say something. It is the rapists who need to feel the shame, not us.

What a brave and beautiful young woman! She reminds me of Twiggy, in the sixties, though not so thin. I am glad for her, that surviving those horrible experiences has helped her to become even stronger and more brave – willing to sacrifice her anonymity to help others. There is no voice so strong as the voice of experience.

Emma you are a brave young lady , I too suffered sex abuse as a child and those who did this remain unpunished. Its taken along time but I now know that it wasnt my fault and those who were meant to protect me did not . I wish you the best in your studies the more people speak out and hold these abusers accountable for there actions will give people the courage to speak out and seek help and justice and understand it was not their fault

What an amazingly strong and brave woman. I wish you every happiness Emma.

My heart breaks for the loss of this poor woman’s childhood. I hope she can recover from her horrific abuse and that her story will help others in the same situation. What a repulsive man!

@ Nik Newcastle, it was actually her parents who failed her, massively !

So very very sad and brave well done Emma but the sad part is all through life you go on but so wish that you had a Father that you could turn to and that is proud of his little girl and that you can say to your friends this is my Dad not take them home and he does it to them too. It never ever goes away hurts like hell and the flash backs as the worst. At least people are more aware now than they used to be. But the death threats whispered in your ear make you never tell a soul and by the time you are old enough to know its wrong the guilt has set in. I went to the police when I was 30 and by then it was to late I was told, I traced him in the end and faced my Demon he was a sad old man who had nothing and months to live I told him I have always prayed for the day he would die so I can jump up and down on his grave and be free. But still does not make up for me not having a father to be proud off. Be happy Emma and Love to you and your Family.

So sorry to read what you went through, it must have been hell an dominated your whole life. You have been very brave to speak up now it will help other children going through the same to know that it’s OK to speak out and not to out up with it. I hope the rest of your life is happier than the first half. You are a great person and your children are lucky to have you. Your Mother was wicked to not visit you in the children’s home and for not being close enough to you to realise what was going on in the first place. She has a lot to answer for too. My heart aches for you for what you went through. What a wicked father he was to you. You deserve all the happiness for the future, and good luck with your Psychology course and the help you are going to give others. You are a great person to come through it like you have done.

Move over Wills and Kate – it’s time to meet the real stars behind Disney’s African Cats movie.

The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge may have been the star attraction last week when the film’s premiere rolled into town – but Paul Goldstein’s pictures of the cute kitten-like Kenyan lions and cheetahs show the four-pawed princes and princess now want their turn in the limelight.

The wildlife photographer and Exodus tour guide worked alongside the Disney team in pinpointing the position of the animals on the Masai Mara.

And while the film crew have captured the two featured animal families on film, Paul has shot the animals he knows almost intimately through the lens of his camera.

Paul said: ‘I knew a few of the Disney crew anyway and on several occasions we found the cheetah and cubs first and let them know. Their camp was virtually next to mine.’

African Cats is a nature documentary film about several lions and cheetahs trying to survive on the African savannah.

Using real-life footage, it focuses on a mother cheetah named Sita who is raising five newborns, and Fang, the leader of Mara defending his family from a banished lion.

Paul, 49, is very familiar with the big screen big cats, having shown hundreds of tourists the animals in their natural habitat.

His amazing images of Sita show the close bond between the mother and her cubs. Atmospheric shots show her huddled together with her offspring as the rain falls.

Paul added: ‘There is no giant cat flap on the plains for any cheetah to retreat through during rain.

‘She always does the same: sitting it out, her eyes closing momentarily before opening to check for danger, it is often a long and saturated vigil.

‘Cubs at this tender age of a few months are very vulnerable, the mum barely ever sleeps.’

I have just caught myself making stupid noises at my monitor and talking to them – they have melted my heart. Stunning pics, a proud mum and five cute healthy cubs. Just gorgeous. More of this please DM.

ahhhhh , baby cheetahs are just gorgeous – in the top 5 cutest baby animals in my opinion. Beautiful!

Kate is stunning! Despite earlier comments, many of us in the USA really DO like the young couple! oh, and the cheetah’s are cute critters, too.

I had no idea they are purple when they’re small … well well!

Wow, stop doing this to me DM – I’m smitten by kittens again.

lions?????? Good grief! Do you HAVE any proof readers?

Nice pictures of big cats ruined by including pics of “royalty” that American’s don’t give a rats a$$ about.

You spoilt the story by putting them two at the bottom. This is about beautiful animals. Not idiot royals. Shame you had to spoil it by doing that.

Gorgeous photos and video !

Even though they are cheetahs…

The Red Cross bosses of slaughtered doctor Khalil Dale have confirmed they had contact with his kidnappers and refused to pay a ransom to free him.

The 60-year-old British aid worker was found beheaded and riddled with bullets on a roadside in Pakistan on Saturday.

His head and body were discovered wrapped in a plastic bag with a note addressed to the chief of police, which read: ‘This is the body of Khalil who we have slaughtered for not paying a ransom amount’.

Khalil Dale, 60, was taken at gunpoint in January while he was working with the Red Cross in the south-west city of Quetta.

Sean Maguire, of the International
Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), has confirmed that the organisation
had been in contact with the kidnappers but refused to reveal any details.

He said the organisation had a policy of not paying ransoms.

Mr Maguire explained: ‘We said that we had some contact with the abductors but we wouldn’t want to give succour to future kidnappers by saying we countenanced paying a ransom.

‘We did everything possible to try to get Khalil out and we are very sad that our efforts failed.

‘We put every effort that we could into liberating him and it is deeply, deeply unfortunate that we did not manage to free him. His death, to our mind, is senseless and barbaric.’

The Pakistani High Commissioner in London, Wajid Shamsul Hasan, also condemned the killing as barbaric.

‘No word can describe the dastardly act of killing an innocent person who was all his life working in aid of the helpless and destitute,” he told BBC Radio 4′s Today programme.

He said the authorities in Pakistan were now trying to establish who was responsible.

‘We are investigating because these things happen in that area. We are trying to find out who they actually are, whether they are Pakistani Taliban or Afghani Taliban. They could be anybody because the game has become so murky in that area,’ he said.

Local police said the Pakistani Taliban had claimed responsibility for the killing.

David Cameron last night described
the killing of Mr Dale, a Muslim convert who was also known as Ken, as a
‘shocking and merciless act’.

The Prime Minister said: ‘I was
deeply saddened to hear today about the  brutal murder of Khalil Dale – a
man who was killed whilst providing humanitarian support to others.

‘This was a shocking and merciless
act, carried out by people with no respect for human life and the rule
of law. Khalil Dale has dedicated many years of his life to helping some
of the most vulnerable people in the world and my thoughts today are
with his friends and family.’

The health programme manager from
Dumfries, Scotland, was travelling home from a school in the troubled
Baluchistan province in a clearly marked Red Cross vehicle when he was
stopped and kidnapped.

He had been working in the country for a year after postings in Somalia, Afghanistan and Iraq.

Friends said Mr Dale – who started
his career as a nurse at Dumfries and Galloway Infirmary – had been
planning to travel to Australia to marry his partner Anne, who he is
believed to have met while working abroad.

He had previously returned to Scotland to look after his mother, Margaret, who died in 2007. 
Foreign Secretary William Hague said
he learned of the death ‘with great sadness’, adding that ‘tireless
efforts’ had been made to secure Mr Dale’s release.

Mr Hague said: ‘I utterly condemn the
kidnapping and killing of Mr Dale, and send my deepest condolences to
his family and loved ones. This was a senseless and cruel act.’

Mr Dale’s brother Ian, who lives in
New Zealand, travelled to Pakistan ten days after he was taken to try to
secure his release. At the time he said police had identified the group
involved.

Speaking earlier this year to appeal
for his release, Mr Dale’s step-niece, Justine Barber, 41, described him
as an honourable man doing an honest job.

She said: ‘He is a lovely man whose lifelong ambition has been to serve those less fortunate.’
Friends of Mr Dale last night described him as ‘an absolutely lovely guy’ who had devoted his life to caring for others.

Retired nurse Sheila Howat, a former
colleague, said: ‘It’s dreadful what has happened to him, really awful.
The world has lost someone who really cared for others.

‘I think the circumstances are absolutely barbaric and disgraceful. He did not deserve that end to his life.

‘I knew him as Ken, and he was an absolutely lovely person, devoted to caring for others less fortunate than himself.

‘He spent time in war-torn countries where help was needed and people were desperate, and that was Ken’s goal in life.’

She plans to contact other friends of
Mr Dale to arrange a memorial service in Dumfries where he was a member
of Friends of the Earth and the Coalition for Peace and Justice.

Mr Dale – who was born in Yemen and was fluent in Arabic and Swahili – had been no stranger to danger.

On previous assignments with the Red Cross, he had been imprisoned and tortured and robbed at gunpoint.

In 1994, he was awarded an MBE for his humanitarian work in some of the world’s hot spots.

A Red Cross spokesman said it ‘condemns in the strongest possible terms this barbaric act’.

He added: ‘We are devastated. Khalil
was a trusted and very experienced staff member who significantly
contributed to the humanitarian cause.’

Police said Mr Dale’s body was found
in an orchard near Quetta. Police chief Ahsan Mahboob verified details and wording of the note on
his body.

Sandra, Alicante+Spain: until it’s your son, daughter, husband, sister etc.
If there’s a risk of this happening in any country, stay away.

I fully support the Red Cross’ refusal to pay for hostages, as it encourages more of the same. Otoh, as has been demonstrated time and again, clueless incompetent Western governments consistently lie when they claim not to deal with peaceloving hostage takers and terrorists.

Murdered, NOT executed.

By paying, or continuing a dalogue with these people, will only encourages them and others, who see this as a way from making easy money. It also puts everyone else who choses to volunteer at risk.

Barbaric and horrifying, but sadly predictable. The government and the Red Cross are doing the right thing, refusing to pay ransoms. It would simply give a green light to every would-be kidnapper out there.

AS much as though it is horrific for his family and friends, they did the right thing. Paying a ransom will only encourage more people to be taken. Risking being caught for no benefit at all will lose appeal.

So sad to see another do-gooder suffers a horrific fate, this is the second such article in the Daily Mail, when will they realise that they are not wanted in a Islamic country.,

These people responsible are nothing other than vile degenerates. This compassionate man was not the enemy – he was there because he clearly felt that he wanted to bring his resourcefulness and intelligence to improve the plight of the people in this God forsaken country and look at how they treated him? He had even converted to Islam. The Red Cross need to put the safety of their volunteers ahead of anything else and pull out.

So very sad an end for a lovely man. But although I have given money to the Red Cross over the years, I do give to finance the Taliban or kidnappers whoever they are. At the end of the day, if someone wants to go to these backward countries and help, that’s their choice, but they know the dangers.

Pull all aid workers out of Pakistan now. The country can have them back when all these criminals are caught and jailed for life or executed. It is all about evil men usimng Islam to grab power and they must not be allowed to succeed. Ransoms must never be paid for it generates more kidnappings.

  • Clerk thought no one could see his computer screen

Jailed: Clerk Debabish Majumber, pictured outside Kingston Crown Court where he received a suspended jail sentence for looking at porn during a rape case

Jailed: Clerk Debabish Majumber outside Kingston Crown Court, where he received a suspended jail sentence for looking at porn during a rape case

A ‘bored’ court clerk who was caught watching porn by a judge during a rape trial has been spared jail.

Debasish Majumder, 54, sat casually viewing explicit online material while a sex attack victim gave evidence at Inner London Crown Court. 

Majumder, from Haringey, north London, who had been working for the
courts service for 27 years, confessed to routinely watching
internet porn when he was bored.

‘I only looked at porn because the case
was boring and did so once or twice a week since December 2009,’ he said
in his police interview.

He was spotted by Judge Nigel Seed QC viewing the footage, and he subsequently reported the incident.

Detectives then found indecent pseudo images of children and extreme porn on his home computer.

Kingston Crown Court heard the married
father-of-one made a series of porn searches during the rape trial in early December 2010.

He also looked at non-sexual material with no relevance to his work.

Sentencing Majumder to seven months in
prison, suspended for two years, Judge Nicholas Price QC said: ‘I’m told
by your counsel that you didn’t think anyone could see what you were
doing – you were wrong.

‘The learned judge conducting the trial saw very
clearly what you did. 

‘It’s incomprehensible that a man of
your age and experience should behave in such an appalling way. It is
inexcusable and reprehensible and you have no one to blame but yourself.

‘The very fact there are no comparable cases shows how rare, if not unique your case must be.

‘You have lost almost everything
including your job, your good name and the probable consequences are you
will find it almost impossible to find another form of employment.

‘You have brought shame upon yourself, your wholly innocent wife and your son.

‘But at 54, with a hitherto unblemished record, you have built up a credit balance and you are entitled to withdraw from that.’

Prosecutor Annabel Darlow told the
court how Judge Seed noticed ‘cartoon-like’ images on his clerk’s
computer but was unable to ascertain whether they were sexual.

‘I think it was farm yard animals but if it was pornographic I couldn’t tell,’ the judge said in a statement.

‘Later I could see he was looking at a list of pornographic websites and I was shocked.’

The judge also said he saw an image of a woman with blonde hair performing a sex act on a man.

‘I watched him on Friday to see if I was mistaken. I looked down at his computer screen and again saw a list of websites.

‘I decided that was enough, I was not mistaken.’

Defending, Susannah Stephens said:
‘These are images that people view perfectly lawfully in a number of
different environments and it’s right to say that Mr Majumder was of the
belief that no one else would be able to see what he was doing.

‘He had no knowledge the judge would be
able to see, he thought in light of where he was sitting that he would
block the judge’s view of the screen and what he was looking at would be
too small for the judge to see.

‘He accepts fully that what he did amounts to misconduct.

‘Prior to this, there wasn’t a single blemish on his record.’

Majumder admitted a single count of misconduct in public office, seven counts of possessing indecent pseudo images of children and an additional count of possessing extreme pornography. 

He will now be supervised for 18 months and must sign the Sex Offenders Register for 10 years.

His computer usage will also be monitored and he will be subject to a sex offender’s prevention order for five years.

So let’s get this right. This disgusting little man was being paid from the public purse to do a job but used that time to watch porn?

Dirty man.

Hopefully, he would not be bored sitting at home. Look on the bright side, someone more deserving would now have a job.

What!!

Doesn’t anyone Read the full article before commenting !, he Perverted the course of Justice as well as having illicit scenes on his PC. Should have been Jailed.

unblemished for 27 years -means he wasnt caught for 27 years. What he does at home is his concern but at work … in such a position… inexcusable. It has become his obsession and this is his wake up call

He was at work being paid by the tax payer to uphold the process of the democratically agreed laws of our land. How can anyone think that watching anything on a screen in that context ,let alone porn, is OK? Do people become so addicted to their virtual lives that they see any requirement to take part in the real world as an intrusion?

Disgusting little oink !!! You watch porn at work you face the sack , you watch child porn you get prison , slightly concerned he was able to cash in from his previously unblemished character , surely all this means is he hasn’t been caught before !!!! Vile creature

I know from cleaning up many computers for people that porn sites are often full of virus and trojans the man should have been charged with compromising sensitive data on a work (clerks) computer or LAN. Also the network administrators for the courts computer system should be questioned as to why work computers were not properly firewalled to prevent employees misusing the system in such a foolhardy way.

How scary is this, the people you would never dream or think of doing such things.

This is the picture that proves a dog really is for life, as Susie the pug dog and Tabitha the piglet cuddle and play as best friends do.

The pair became unlikely pals when Susie’s owner rescued the piglet when she was found abandoned at the side of the road, just days old.

The pair were inseparable, and their owners made videos of the pair playing together – which showed Tabitha climbing all over her new mum.

However in just a few months, she’s grown to almost the same size as her adoptive mum.

‘She was so small her umbilical cord was still attached. There were no pig farms anywhere near where she was found, so we can only assume she fell from the back of a lorry – possibly on her way to slaughter.

‘We had to feed her by hand, and I brought her into the house with me so I could keep an eye on her. But Susie immediately took an interest in her, and wouldn’t stay away from the basket she was in.

‘I let them play together and it was
obvious Tabitha saw Susie as a mother figure. They would nuzzle up
together – they didn’t leave each other’s side.

Is it possible for a pig and a dog to have babies together , if so is it not kinda dangerous to have them to together all the time especially on that duvet. . Just saying. – Samantha , essex , 30/4/2012 21:35XXXXX
Samantha, it is genetically impossible for dogs and pigs to interbreed they have been seperated from a mutually common ancestor by multi millions of years. However, even it it was possible for such interbreeding to take place it, couldn’t possibly occur between these particular animals, they’re both females. Finally, that ”duvet” is a commercially available dog bed to be found in all good pet shops.

tail docking only became illegal in the uk on 6th April 2007 NOT 20 years ago as previously stated!! and yes, what an adorable couple of playmates they make

Adorable.

@Freya,Uk – I sniggered very hard at your comment!

How come the boxer has a docked tail? That’s been illegal in the UK for about 20 years now?

So the piglet was hours OR days old when it was rescued, they’ve been friends for three weeks OR three months and the ‘pug’ is doing an impersonation of a boxer…
Just imagine this kind of sloppy journalism when applied to something important like politics, the economy or the environment… you’re not even pretending to be a newspaper anymore are you? Is this all a mass experiment to gauge how stupid the public really are?

How cute are they, bless. Well done Wendy and also the kind person who rescued Tabitha from the side of the road. I wish slaughter houses didn’t exist and everyone was vegetarian :(

Better keep the dog away from Obama. The boxer will be on the White House menu before you know it. How can anyone eat a DOG ? ? ?

Just think, you probably ate her mum. Many animals give birth on death trucks on the way to the slaughterhouse, this piglet was extremely lucky that she fell from the truck and was rescued. Her mum, brother sisters won’t have been so lucky.

Daredevil Dean Dunbar has abseiled down Britain’s highest waterfall, been launched from a human catapult and is training to swim the English Channel.

An adrenaline junkie, his fearlessness is astonishing – all the more so because he is registered blind.

The 43-year-old was robbed of his sight by a rare hereditary condition called rod and cone dystrophy which struck when he was nine.

Undaunted: Dean has not let his disability slow him down and is already turning his attention to more death-defying activities after sky walking, bungee jumping, waterfall climbing and even mountain biking

Undaunted: Dean has not let his disability slow him down and is already turning his attention to more death-defying activities after sky walking, bungee jumping, waterfall climbing and even mountain biking

His vision slowly deteriorated and at 25, when he lost it completely, a doctor advised him to get a guide dog and learn braille. Instead he took up skydiving and a daredevil was born.

He has completed nearly 30 death-defying challenges, from his first jump out of a plane in 1998.

Adventurer: Dean Dunbar is set to complete a swim of the channel tunnel marking his 101 extreme challenges

Adventurer: Dean Dunbar is set to complete a swim of the channel tunnel marking his 101 extreme challenges

‘By the time my feet touched the ground after skydiving I was addicted,’ he said.

‘I’ve certainly been knocked about a bit – I’ve had a broken nose, damaged shoulder blade, two broken ribs and a knackered leg.

‘I know the risks before I set off though, and I don’t regret anything I’ve done.

‘I feel the need to go bigger and better with my challenges – as soon as I’ve finished one I’m thinking about where I can get the next buzz. It’s like an addiction.’

Mr Dunbar, from Blairgowrie, Perthshire, could not swim even a length of a swimming pool six months ago but is now preparing to cross the English Channel.

He is already the only blind person in the world to bungee jump from a helicopter, finish the gruelling five-day Hebridean Challenge adventure race and hydrospeed the length of the River Tay.

Few could have expected such achievements when he began losing his sight as a schoolboy. He first noticed this when he started struggling to read what his teacher was writing on the blackboard.

The adventurer said: ‘After a few weeks my parents took me to a doctor and I was diagnosed with rod and cone dystrophy. I was told that my rod and cone cells were gradually dying off and that eventually I would go blind.

‘My sight became increasingly worse and when I was 25 I went to a consultant who told me right there and then that I would be blind within the year and I should get a guide dog and learn to read braille.

‘I was devastated. I felt like I’d been hit by a truck.’

Four years later, however, he was
tackling his first tandem skydive, to raise money for the blind school
which he attended and later taught at.

Addicted to the ‘high’ of plummeting miles to the ground, he started trying all the other extreme sports he could.

Most
organisations turned him away, worried about the danger for someone who
can see only blurry shapes and light and uses a cane to get around.

But some were eager to help and Mr Dunbar was able to take up sandboarding, mountain biking and sea kayaking.

He
has bungee jumped from a helicopter and ‘aquaseiled’ 658 feet down
Britain’s tallest waterfall, Eas a Chual Aluinn falls, near Sutherland

The
internet seller, who is married to GP Rhona, exercises in the gym for
hours to keep in peak condition for his challenges but admits to getting
scared at times.

‘I was warned about the massive risks involved in white water sledging, being blind,’ he said.

‘I
was told that if I went down the wrong fork of the river that there was
a very real chance I could die. Because of my sight I was terrified of
missing the right turn, but I forced myself to do it anyway and I’m so
glad I did.’

His biggest
challenge will be crossing the Channel in August to raise money for both
the Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen and Families Association and Perth and
Kinross Society for the Blind.

Mr
Dunbar, who has his own website, extremedreams.co.uk, said: ‘After one
length of the front crawl, I used to be spent. It always proved to be
the hardest swimming discipline for me because my head would be under
the water a lot of the time and I would get worn out and disorientated.

‘Over
a year ago I could only swim one length but, after a lot of practice, I
swim 15 miles a week now. I don’t think that’s too bad.’

Mr Dunbar said: ‘I’m not fazed by the channel. There have been several blind Channel attempts, so we have proved it can be done.

‘I think anyone finishing it is a great achievement regardless of their disabilities but I am confident I can do it.’

A man accused of murdering a gay
supermarket worker embarked on a campaign against uncaught paedophiles
using ‘military strategy’ to track them down after overhearing convicted
prisoners planning new offences while in prison, a court heard.

Christopher Hunnisett, who is on trial
accused of killing supermarket worker Peter Bick, told the court he
used the internet and a network of ‘live sources’ – some made in prison -
to investigate rumours of child abuse.

He assigned possible offenders militaristic ‘call signs’ depending on the strength of evidence against them, he said.

The jury at Lewes Crown Court was told
Hunnisett, 28, started the operation after being acquitted and freed in
September 2010 following a retrial for the murder of the Rev Ronald
Glazebrook, whom he accused of abusing him, for which he had already
served nine years of a life sentence.

While on remand ahead of the second
trial, the court heard today, he took part in ‘therapy sessions’ at
Grendon Underwood prison in Buckinghamshire, designed as a form of
restorative justice to try to treat sex offenders. But he overheard
offenders planning a paedophile ring.

Hunnisett told the court today he
investigated Bick, 57, after being told a ‘rumour’ about him, saying the
police lacked enough power to catch paedophiles.

Giving evidence, he told the court
that after ‘philosophy’ discussions with other prisoners on how to deal
with sex offenders, he decided he wanted to track down ‘rapists,
paedophiles, those who force women into prostitution, sex traffickers’
by breaking the law and hacking into profiles on sex websites to see
what users were doing – something he claimed the police cannot do.

‘There are so many paedophiles in this country, over 600,000 who just offend against children,’ he said.

‘Even if I stopped more than 100 a day
I would take over 20 years to deal with them. It is impossible for one
person to stop them all.

‘I commend the police and the child
protection agencies for what they are doing but they are beaten by
certain rules and regulations.

‘If you really want to find out …
you have to look at their (website) profiles and see who they are
talking to. It is not hard to find these people but the police are
beaten by the rules.’

While in the witness box Hunnisett
used military terms like ‘in the field’ to describe how he investigated
claims of sex offending, using call signs like ‘Sierra’ to describe a
‘suspect’ and ‘Tango’ to describe a ‘target’ against whom he had proof
of illegal activities.

One they had been ‘dealt with’ they were reclassified as ‘x-ray’.

He admitted reading books about intelligence agencies to help him plan his activities.

He said he tracked down Bick after a
contact gave him the name of a ‘Peter’ living in Bexhill, showed him a
digital picture and told him a ‘rumour’ of what he was alleged to have
done.

Hunnisett said he investigated and met several men called Peter before he found Mr Bick.

Mr Bick was killed during the early
hours of January 11 last year after Hunnisett, whom he had met for sex,
inflicted five severe blows to his head with a hammer and strangled him
with a shoelace, the court has been told previously.

The jury has also heard that Hunnisett wrote to his girlfriend, Lucy Anderson, while on remand, admitting the killing.

It read: ‘I know you do not understand
why I did what I did. In short, I simply wanted to stop some really
nasty people hurting kids, the young, the weak, the vulnerable.

‘I never planned to hurt him, I just wanted to stop him, get evidence on him to get him to confess and tell people what he was.’

Hunnisett went on to tell Miss Anderson that when Mr Bick confessed to him he lost control, the court heard.

He added: ‘You have no idea how mad it makes me knowing that someone can do that and they think it’s okay.

‘It’s disgusting and they have no idea how much it destroys a person and damages them, and no one gives a damn about it.’

The trial has already heard there is no evidence that Mr Bick was a paedophile.

Hunnisett, of Chanctonbury Drive,
Hastings, East Sussex, denies murder but admits manslaughter by way of
diminished responsibility.
