  • Pensioner, 70, charged with 1961 murder of funfair girl

    A man of 70 has been charged with the murder of a teenage girl 46 years after they were seen leaving a funfair together. Anthony Hall was arrested after police launched a coldcase review of the unsolved killing of 15-year-old Jacqueline Thomas in 1961. A week later the teenager was found raped and strangled in undergrowth in a nearby disused allotment in Bordesley Green, Birmingham, by a man walking his dog. The murder sparked a manhunt involving hundreds of officers who quizzed workers at the Hughes biscuit factory where she worked, along with showmen at the funfair she had visited, as well as residents of hundreds of neighbouring homes.

  • Formula 1 - Lauda: Mercedes call an over-reaction

    Hamilton was cruising to the chequered flag after leading for the first 64 laps of the race until an accident involving Toro Rosso teenager Max Verstappen and Romain Grosjean in his Lotus turned the blue-riband event on its head. Mercedes motorsport boss Toto Wolff conceded his strategists blundered by calling in Hamilton for a pit stop to take on a set of fresh super-soft tyres - a decision Lauda branded an over-reaction to feedback Hamilton gave on the radio. It resulted in the reigning champion emerging behind team-mate Nico Rosberg and Sebastian Vettel in his Ferrari, with no way past and having to settle for third.

  • Premier League - Images reveal damage from Marouane Fellaini's stamp on Paul McShane

    The Belgian, who has earned a reputation for borderline challenges during his time in the Premier League, was surrounded by incensed Hull players after what seemed a vicious stamp on the defender. Fellaini was rightly shown the red card for the stamp by referee Lee Probert, and now fairly gruesome photos have emerged revealing the extent of the large gash above McShane’s knee. The United midfielder, who had only been on the pitch for 18 minutes when he was given the straight red card, inflicted the wound on McShane after clumsily bringing his leg down after the ball had gone.
