Felix Alexander (right), 17, died when he stepped in front of an oncoming train near his home in Worcester on April 27, after telling his parents he was going to school. An inquest heard Felix had killed himself after suffering years of bullying. The torment started when he was 10 and a pupil at the £13,000-a-year King's School because he was not allowed to play violent video game Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 (inset, a screenshot). He later became the victim of online trolls. His devastated mother Lucy (left with Felix), 51, has now written to bullies, teachers and parents, describing the torment he suffered.
Woman 'who was raped by Ched Evans demanded rough intercourse from the footballer and asked him to perform a sex act on her'
The teenage waitress allegedly raped by footballer Ched Evans at a Premier Inn hotel was 'taking the lead' and demanding he perform a sex act on her, a court has heard. She repeatedly asked that he 'f*** me harder', the defence claimed, before suggesting that the alleged victim had a history of wanting rough sex with other partners. The woman, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was cross-examined this afternoon after giving evidence from behind a curtain at Evans' retrial. She disputed the claim that she was 'taking the lead' on sexual positions and told jurors she had no recollection of any sexual activity on the night of the alleged rape. Former Premier League striker Evans preyed on the then 'heavily intoxicated' woman after his friend brought her back to a budget hotel room near Rhyl, north Wales, jurors have been told.
'People voted for change and change is going to come!' May makes her bold pitch to middle Britain, promising a post-Brexit country run for 'ordinary working families' instead of 'international elites'

Two-year-old girl died 'after swallowing spare battery from television's 3D glasses that got stuck in her throat for a week and corroded'
Unbeknown to her parents, little Francesca Asan (pictured) went into a set of drawers at the family home in Basingstoke and took the 2cm battery out of its packaging, before putting it in her mouth. The toddler then endured seven days of agony as her worried parents made repeated appointments with medics to try and discover why their daughter was so unwell. It was only one week after the incident when the little girl went 'floppy' in her father's arms that she was rushed to hospital and doctors discovered what had happened. Tests showed the small three-volt lithium battery had eroded through her oesophagus into her artery, causing 'catastrophic' bleeding which led to her death. Despite efforts from medics, the little girl had developed severe blood clots in her stomach and died. Francesca suffered from congenital heart abnormalities, which meant her right subclavian artery was displaced. Today, at an inquest into her death attended by her father George (inset), coroner Andrew Bradley recorded a verdict of misadventure and said the case was a 'timely reminder' of the dangers of batteries.
Grandmother is jailed for cruelty towards five children including her granddaughter, seven, who ran into a shop barefoot to beg for something to drink hours before being found dead
Juanila Smikle (left) was convicted last month of cruelty allegations at Nottingham Crown Court. She was arrested after her granddaughter Shanay Walker (right) was found dead. The child died from a brain haemorrhage in July 2014. Prosecutor Richard Pratt QC emphasised that there was no suggestion Smikle was responsible for the death. However, he said inquiries showed the grandmother 'wilfully assaulted and ill-treated' the child for two years before her death. He said the death prompted an inquiry that revealed other children had been treated cruelly by Smikle.
