THE mum of a 10-year-old boy has told how he keeps throwing himself from heights - after being struck down by an "evil" infection. Fiona Fleming said Brody changed virtually "overnight" leaving the Norfolk schoolboy suffering with intense psychotic episodes.

"I suffered temporary loss of eye sight because he whipped me around the head with a curtain pole," she revealed. "He had done nothing like that before. I didn't know where to go."
