THE man wrongly accused of killing Rachel Nickell is reportedly working at a Tesco store years after picking up a £700,000 payout. Colin Stagg was falsely charged with murdering the young mum on Wimbledon Common in the summer of 1992. The former model, 23, was walking with her dog Molly and two-year-old son Alexander when she was attacked and stabbed 49 times. The young child was later found clinging to his mum's blood-soaked body pleading for her to wake up . Stagg was later the target of a honey trap operation involving a blonde undercover cop tasked with getting him to "confess" to a murder he did not commit. He never admitted to killing Rachel, however, and even though there was no worthwhile evidence against him, police still charged him with her murder. The case was eventually thrown out at the Old Bailey in 1994 by Mr Justice Ognall, who refused to put the undercover officer's evidence before a jury. He said police had shown "excessive zeal" and had … [Read more...] about Colin Stagg is working at Tesco after £700,000 payout for being wrongly accused of Rachel Nickell’s murder

How great is the risk of contracting coronavirus outdoors? The chances of becoming infected with the virus are far slimmer outdoors than indoors. This applies to the original coronavirus as well as to its mutants. This is due to aerosols, which are tiny particles floating in the atmosphere, that play a key role in the spread of the virus. Experts say aerosols pose a smaller risk outdoors. "This has to do with air circulation being far more pronounced outdoors," says Nico Mutters, who heads the Institute for Hygiene and Public Health at Bonn University Hospital. "The winds have a quick diluting effect." Birgit Wehner, an aerosols researcher at the Leibniz Institute for Tropospheric Research, says the tiny particles we exhale dry and dissipate far quicker outdoors. However, a paper by the Aerosols Association — signed by Wehner and others — states that infections still cannot be ruled out when individuals gather in large groups without keeping a sufficient distance. This means … [Read more...] about Fact check: The risk of catching coronavirus outdoors
