Video report by ITV Anglia's Dononvan Blake.

Football is helping a young girl in Cambridgeshire cope with a neurological disorder known as Tourettes Syndrome.

Daisy McGregor, who's 11, says playing the game helps her to forget she has the condition.

Her favourite footballer is England's women striker Eni Aluko, who turned up to one of Daisy's training sessions.

India Chipchase: First evidence from the man accused of murdering her

ITV Anglia's Sarah Cooper was in court.

Edward Tenniswood, the 52-year-old accused of raping and throttling India Chipchase, today (July 26) told the jury he saw her looking "distressed" outside NBs nightclub in Northampton in the early hours of Saturday the 30th January.

He told the court: "I just felt sorry for her, I'm a tactile person, I just put my arm half round her in a sort of paternal way" to "calm her down."

The prosecution claim the former book-keeper "led, steered or escorted" her into a taxi and took her back to his house on Stanley Road, where her body was found on a mattress the next day.

Mr Tenniswood said he told India she was welcome to come back to his place for a drink if she wanted to. Once they got back to his house, he told the jury, India's mood improved. He said they were joking and she was "not upset anymore."

He denies charges of murder and rape.

The trial continues.
