'I was scarred for life in evil acid attack'

Almost a year ago, to the day, Adele Bellis was scarred for life in a horrific acid attack masterminded by her abusive and controlling ex boyfriend.

In August 2014, Adele, then 23, was waiting at a bus stop when a man approached her out of nowhere and threw acid in her face before running off.

Nick Clegg reveals he was told off for weight gain

Former Liberal Democrat leader Nick Clegg has revealed he was once called fat and told to lose weight by colleague Lord Paddy Ashdown.

The ex Deputy PM was on the show to discuss his new memoir, Politics: Between the Extremes, in which he opens up for the first time about the highs and lows of his political career, including the collapse of the Lib Dems.

Clegg, who drew criticism for piling on the pounds after entering Downing Street, revealed he felt compelled to shape up following a stern ticking off from fellow Lib Dem veteran Paddy Ashdown.

''Paddy Ashdown came into my office and said, 'you're fat!' He barked at me! He said, 'you've got to get thinner' with military demand, so I did!''

I want some compassion and understanding of terminal illness

– Carmen Alkali is fighting to legalise assisted dying after her terminally ill mother chose to end her own life in a Swiss clinic

A year since the Assisted Dying Bill was rejected in Parliament, Lorraine was joined today by Carmen Alkali who accompanied her terminally ill mother to a Swiss clinic where she ended her own life.

Sandy Alkali was diagnosed with an aggressive form of Motor Neurone Disease in 2014, aged just 62, and within months she was struggling to walk and talk.

In November 2015 Sandy made the heartbreaking decision to end her suffering and arranged an appointment at the Dignitas Centre in Switzerland. In a letter before her assisted death six months ago, Sandy explained the disease would eventually paralyse her entire body and she wished to die with dignity.
