THE speedboat killer Jack Shepherd's lawyer has accused the victim's family of gloating over his prison sentence. Mariam Kublashvili blasted Charlotte Brown's relatives for refusing to accept his several apologies. Shepherd, 31, evaded justice for 10 months. On Thursday he was jailed for an extra six months, for skipping bail. He had already been sentenced to six years in jail in his absence over Charlotte Browne's death in December 2015 when they were both thrown from his speedboat. Charlotte, of Clacton, Essex, died on a first date with Shepherd during a late-night, drunken jaunt in December 2015 in the speedboat he bought to “pull women”. The 14ft Fletcher Arrowflyte boat hit an object in the water and both were flipped into the icy River Thames. The business consultant remained expressionless as he was led aboard the plane. Wearing an open-neck white shirt, navy blazer and blue jeans, Shepherd was photographed getting into the prison escorted by Georgian officers.

Heidi Land has a beautiful smile just like any other four-year-old. Her mum Sarah and dad Steve enjoy taking her on holiday and celebrating her achievements like all parents. And each milestone is a huge moment after the many difficulties little Heidi has already overcome. She is one of only a handful of children to have suffered HIE - hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy shortly after birth. This refers to a range of conditions caused by a lack of blood and oxygen to the brain. In Heidi's case it left her with quadriplegic cerebral palsy, epilepsy and struggling with her hearing and sight. She is also fully tube fed and has a tracheostomy. Many HIE incidents occur before or during labour and affect 3 to 4 in every 1,000 births in the UK. However, most people have never heard of HIE.

WHILE some Brits will have been smacked by their parents as a child - and think it is OK - many see it as an unnecessary and harmful punishment. Here we tell you everything you need to know about smacking kids, and whether or not it's allowed by law... What is the law on smacking your children, and is it illegal? It is illegal for a parent or carer to smack their own child, except where it amounts to "reasonable punishment", according to section 58 of the Children Act 2004.
