THE lawyer defending Harvey Weinstein claims the movie mogul had a 10-year consensual affair with one of his accusers. Benjamin Brafman said yesterday Weinstein was accused of raping one woman, and that he had the affair with her both before and after the alleged rape. His comments offer a first glimpse into what possible legal defence the disgraced producer could take to combat police charges. Brafman also said he was concerned that publicity surrounding the case and "inappropriate pressure" on prosecutors could be unfair to his client. He spoke to reporters after a closed-door proceeding before New York Supreme Court Justice James Burke in Manhattan, which he said he had requested to raise his concerns about the case.

In his head, he believed he was carrying out the will of Allah, to strike down those who had abused and killed Muslims across the globe. As he hunched over the three glass bottles filled with caustic soda, kerosene and nails, he imagined the supposedly suicidal explosion would lead him to heaven, as promised by those who had communicated with him online, urging him on to glory. The ‘bomb’ was as inept as his murderous belief in glory and he was left with horrible chemical burns. Who was Nicky Reilly?

Known at other times as Bigg Nite Out and Party City, the feature ran weekly and showed photographs of revellers enjoying themselves in and around the pubs and clubs of Newcastle city centre.

EVER wondered how the Friends crew managed to afford those endless cups of coffee in Central Perk? Well, GiffGaff has trawled through all 10 seasons of the hit US sitcom to estimate what each character earned. Surprisingly, Joey ends up being the highest paid Friend. He is an out-of-work actor in most episodes, but when he gets the lead in a movie he earns a cool $130,000. Chandler earns a cool $100,000 through his role as an IT Procurement Manager, but sees his wages plummet to $45,000 when he becomes a Junior Advertising Copywriter. Ross takes home $75,000 through his work as a palaeontologist, while Rachel’s fashion wages hover around the $55,000 mark. Monica is predicted to earn $80,000 as the Head Chef at Javu.
