Becky Godden's mother: 'I've said all along I believe there are more'

If they find anything another family will have to go through this journey I've been through. My heart goes out to them.

– Karen Edwards

The mother of one of Christopher's Halliwell's victims Becky Godden joined us for an emotional interview as forensic teams resume excavation work at his former home.

The 53-year-old taxi driver, of Swindon, Wiltshire, is currently serving a double life sentence for the murder of Becky, 20, in January 2003 and Sian O'Callaghan, 22, in March 2011.

But police have said there is a 'distinct possibility' he murdered others.

Tearful Karen Edwards said: "I've said it all along, I believe there are more than Becky and Sian."

People have got these potentially dangerous machines in their homes - and quite frankly they're not fit for purpose

Millions of owners of potentially lethal tumble dryers have been warned not to use them, while they await repair. Tumble dryers sold under the Hotpoint, Creda and Indesit brands have been behind a series of fires.

This morning we were joined by Vickie Sheriff who called for a full recall of all the machines involved and strongly encouraged people to check their tumble dryer model to see if it poses a potential fire risk.

Whirlpool have warned customers that if their tumble dryer model is affected they should "unplug it and not use it until it has been modified".

'I can't remember my pregnancy or giving birth'

I didn't get to bond with my bump

– Tina Tappenden

Being pregnant and giving birth is one of life's defining moments, but 23-year-old Tina Tappenden has no recollection of either.

The young mum went through it all suffering blackouts and being in an induced coma and now can't remember carrying and having her little girl.

At first doctors thought Tina had a mental health condition, but after a month - and some research by her big sisters - she was diagnosed with a form of encephalitis, a disease virtually unknown but which affects 6,000 people a year in the UK.

They're also capable of having oceans, again suggesting that life could flourish on them.
