Why I couldn't disagree more with the hoo-ha over My Mum, your Dad's widower Roger Hawes

ALEX DELANEY: Closing the door to my first-floor flat and walking down the stairs, I spotted my neighbour at our communal front door. After giving me a thorough inspection, she suspiciously asked: 'Are you going on a date?' I won't ever forget those words, so crisply delivered in stinging judgement. The truth was, I was meeting a rather lovely man. Someone I had made an effort for - smart jeans, eye-catching top, some makeup, too. And she noticed. Why was she was so astonished and judgey? Because my husband had died only six months before. Her words rang in my ears all night, but I still had a good time on London's South Bank. My date George had touchingly brought a picnic along with a flask of mulled wine too.

Dutroux - who to this day still lives in infamy in the minds of the Belgian public - was part of a small group of people found responsible for a horrifying series of murders and kidnappings that shocked not just the country, but the whole of Europe. His former house in the Marcinelle suburb of Charleroi - and Dutroux himself - first became infamous in August 1996 when he led police to two kidnapped girls who were found cowering in the secret basement after they had been subjected to horrific abuse. Sabine Dardenne, 12, and Laetitia Delhez, 14, had been abducted separately earlier that year, chained to a bed and repeatedly raped. But as more was learned about Dutroux, it became clear they were fortunate to have been found alive. It transpired that four more girls - Mélissa Russo and Julie Lejeune, both eight years old, An Marchal, 17, and Eefje Lambrecks, 19 - had also been kidnapped by Dutroux and his accomplices a year earlier. All four died.

How Katherine Ryan could have the last laugh on Russell Brand! Comic who warned of 'sexual

Comedian Katherine Ryan (left) could earn millions of pounds if she capitalises on her new role as the new face of the #MeToo movement.

'Child vampire' body is found in Poland: 17th century locals feared body of youngster

Myths surrounding the undead and vampires date back to as early as the 11th century in eastern Europe, and it is not uncommon for skeletons bearing the marks of these superstitions to be unearthed.
