Victim reveals how she took this picture during late-night encounter before grunting man

Abi Conroy (left), 23, said the stranger charged at her in a 'full black rubbery' outfit, 'grunting and breathing heavily', while she was taking a late-night walk in a Somerset village. Helped by passers-by, she chased him off and was able to take a picture (centre) before he vanished through a hedge. Police yesterday arrested a second suspect in his 30s over the incident following the arrest on Monday of a man in his 20s. The man in his 20s was later bailed and described by locals as from a very religious family. Abi, who is a barber, said she was struggling to come to terms with last Thursday's confrontation because she already suffered from anxiety. 'It was a massive shock, I didn't know if I was dreaming,' she said. 'I've already suffered from severe anxiety that's why I go for my little walks - to try and clear my head.' Abi and her wife Pip (right, together), who have been married a year, said that while they were grateful the police were doing their job, it would be difficult to relax until they knew the right person had been caught.

'If being called a bigot means I stand up for my beliefs, I take it as a badge of honour': Christian doctor who refused to call 'a 6ft bearded man' madam tells why he is determined to fight a landmark legal case 

Father-of-four Dr David Mackereth (left) never imagined he would find himself branded a 'bigot' by Piers Morgan (right) on live breakfast TV, and fearing that he would never work as a doctor again. Dr Mackereth had worked for more than 20 years as an NHS A&E doctor, most recently at the Princess Royal Hospital in Telford, Shropshire (inset) before he started work as a benefits assessor at the DWP. He claims he was sacked in June 2018 after saying during a training course for the job that he would refuse to refer to 'a man six feet tall with a beard' if they wanted to be addressed as 'she'. Dr Mackereth believes his ongoing legal case against the Government could have significant legal implications. 'This case is all about whether I am legally clear to say - on the grounds of my religious conscience - "No, I can't call you 'she' or 'he', not because I want to hurt you or don't accept you, but because my Christian convictions simply won't allow me to do that," 'he said.

The action will take place just as the school summer holidays begin - but passengers hoping to avoid chaos by using different airports could get caught up in other industrial action taking place around the country.

Ronnie Le Drew (left, with Zippy) is releasing a tell-all memoir called Zippy and Me, that is set to shatter the innocence of the children's programme, often described as Britain's answer to Sesame Street. Rainbow ran for 27 series and 1,071 episodes, after its launch in 1972 and was famous for its three main characters: Bungle the teddy bear, George the hippopotamus and Zippy, an unknown yellowish creature.

Two homes which these proud owners sold to pay for crippling dementia care costs

The Daily Mail today calls on ministers to end the disgraceful neglect of families living with the burden of dementia. A plan to fix the broken care system was promised in March 2017 - but the resulting green paper has been delayed six times, with no sign of when it will be published. Fred (right) was a World War II veteran who later served in the police force. He was diagnosed with vascular dementia in 2016. By May 2018, his condition had deteriorated significantly and he had to move into a dementia care home.

Yet, she now says - possibly half in jest - that she is repulsed by the very idea of wealth. Kate was born in Reading in 1975. Her mother, Sally, was a nanny and waitress, and her father, Roger, a jobbing actor. She was raised in a three-bedroom terrace house (inset), now valued at just under £500,000. She also attended a fee-paying school - more of which later. However Kate is insistent on the topic of how proletarian she is.

Indian man hasn't washed his six-foot dreadlocks in 40 years - and call them a 'blessing

Sakal Dev Tuddu, 63, from the Munger district of eastern Bihar state, wears his six-foot-long mat of hair on top of his head like a turban. He says that one night, some 40 years ago, his hair spontaneously wove itself into a 'jatta' or dreadlock, which he took as a divine blessing. He also says God visited him in a dream and told him not to cut his hair - an instruction he has obeyed ever since. He also gave up drinking and smoking out of devotion to his deity. Sadhus, Hindu holy men, also foreswear grooming their hair and sport long jattas. But unlike the sadhus, Sakal Dev's hair is matted into one huge knotted lock, which he ties up in a white cloth when he goes out to keep it clean.

Surprise! Black cat startled by the sight of its owner's face falls backwards onto the floor

The black cat was filmed by an owner in her home and the video was later posted on Youtube. It is not known where the video was filmed. It starts with the owner moving around the corner as they hold the camera; before the cat, which is leaning against a wall and looking the other way, comes into view. The owner then moves the camera very close to the cat, which still has its head turned. When she says its name, the cat turns to look at her. But the black cat seems surprised by the sight of its owner, and immediately falls backwards to lie face-up on to the floor.
