Cast of Rhys Jones murder drama faced 'an awful lot of responsibility'

The fact that it was real and something that a family are living through, and still are, day in, day out, it brings an awful lot of responsibility to bear on the whole cast.

– Actress Sinead Keenan

The actress who plays the mother of murdered schoolboy Rhys Jones in a TV dramatisation has told of the 'responsibility' she felt in taking on the role.

Sinead Keenan stars in Little Boy Blue, the new ITV series based on the story of the 11 year old, who was gunned down by 16-year-old Sean Mercer on his way home from football practice in Croxteth, Liverpool, in 2007.

Marathon hero Matthew Rees on why he had to help David Wyeth across the finish line

I came round the final corner ready to sprint that final 200m, but as soon as I saw David and his legs go beneath him, there was no other option, I had to help him

– Matthew said he didn't hesitate to help David

This year's London Marathon broke records with around 40,000 runners completing the 26.2 mile race. But it was two athletes in particular that embodied the true spirit of sportsmanship.

When David Wyeth's legs began to give in to exhaustion, fellow runner Matthew Rees sacrificed his own race time to make sure David got over the finish line.

They were only 200 metres from the end of the race, and when it seemed just words of encouragement wouldn't get David there, Matthew physically helped him complete the course.

Top five headlines you're waking up to

  1. Jeremy Corbyn will tell trade unionists today that if Labour wins the general election, they'll overturn what he calls the 'vicious Tory Trade Union Act'. The laws brought in by David Cameron meant that for any strike action, there had to be a 50% turnout at the ballot for the action to be legal. It follows the Leader's controversial comments that he would review all aspects of defence policy, which immediately called into question his commitment to Trident.

  2. Far-right leader Marine Le Pen and centrist Emmanuel Macron have advanced from the first-round of the French presidential election, projected results suggest. The pair now face a run-off vote on May 7.

  3. A former Royal Navy officer has been killed by thieves who ran him over in his own car after he confronted them outside his home. Michael Samwell, 35, died after going to stop his black Audi S3 being taken in the early hours of Sunday in Chorlton-cum-Hardy, Manchester.

  4. The boyfriend of reality TV star Ferne McCann has been charged in connection with an acid attack in an east London nightclub. Around 20 revellers suffered burns, including a man and woman both blinded in one eye, after a substance was thrown at them in the early hours of Easter Monday.

  5. Tougher fines for motorists who drive well above the speed limit are set to come into force from Monday. Drivers caught doing 41mph in a 20mph zone, 51mph in a 30mph zone, 66mph in a 40mph or 101mph on a motorway will face penalties starting from 150% of their weekly income - up 50% on the previous level. The new regulations apply in England and Wales.

Could diet drinks increase risk of stroke and dementia?

People who drink diet drinks could be three times more at risk of stroke or dementia, according to scientists at Boston University.

Meanwhile, NHS England has announced that sugary drinks may be banned from hospital shops.

But could the diet version of sugary drinks be just as bad for you, or even worse?

Dr Sarah Jarvis told us it's "worrying stuff" - but we shouldn't swap our diet drinks for the full fat versions and in any case, drinking water is always the best option.
