A woman who claims she was indecently assaulted by Max Clifford in 1966 says she didn't report the alleged incident because she thought she wouldn't be believed.
Asked why she didn't tell the police about her claims he "lunged" at her in a car, the woman said that she had not considered reporting it as she felt it would be her word against his.
"I just wanted to put it behind me," she added.
The woman said had told friends when he became more famous that: "I had a a really bad experience with him".
She added that she felt "lucky and scared" at the time and didn't tell her parents because they we're strict and would have stopped hereever going out again.

A woman who was allegedly indecently assaulted by PR guru Max Clifford thought she was going to be raped when he "lunged" at her in his car, a court has heard.

She said that after offering her a lift home, he drove her to an alleyway near a sports field, and produced a book of photographs of him with celebrities, after which she said she would like to meet the Walker Brothers.
Mr Clifford had said "I can arrange that, but this is what you've got to do", the woman claimed.
"He put my seat right back and then he tried for force himself upon me, basically," she said.
"I thought at the time I was going to get raped if I didn't get out of the car, I was just thinking about escape."

A blood test that could predict the onset of Alzheimer's poses ethical challenges, an expert from the Alzheimer's Society has said.
A new study published in the journal Nature Medicine found that changes in the blood may predict whether someone will develop Alzheimer's.
"Having such a test would be an interesting development, but it also throws up ethical considerations," Dr Doug Brown, the charity's director of research and development, said.
"If this does develop in the future people must be given a choice about whether they would want to know, and fully understand the implications.
Dr Brown said there needed to be larger studies with different populations before it could be turned into a blood test for Alzheimer's disease.

The six pillars of Gordon Brown's plan to revamp the UK's relationship with Scotland will outline a "radical" transfer of powers downwards from Westminster and Edinburgh to local communities". It also includes:
- A new UK constitutional law setting out a plan to share resources for defence and security.
- A constitutional guarantee of the permanence of the Scottish Parliament.
- A new division of powers between Scotland and Westminster that gives Holyrood more powers in employment, health, transport and economic regeneration.
- A new tax sharing agreement that balances the commitment of the UK to pool and share its resources.
- New power-sharing partnerships to address shared problems on poverty, unemployment, housing need and the environment.

I want to move us from the old highly-centralised, uniform Britain dominated by out-of-date ideas of an undivided Westminster sovereignty to a new diverse power-sharing, risk-sharing, resource-sharing UK which is best defined not as an old union but as a modern, constitutional partnership of nations.
