A health care assistant from Cambridgeshire who abused his position of trust to begin a relationship with one of his patients has been jailed.

Stephen Ray, 26, of Ramsey Road, St Ives was working at Ida Darwin Hospital in Fulbourn in March last year when he was found asleep in bed with a 15-year-old female patient at her home.

An investigation revealed the pair had exchanged numerous messages on Facebook before Ray visited the girl’s home and stayed the night in her room.

Ray was charged with sexual activity with a girl aged 13 to 15 on January 8. He pleaded guilty at Cambridge Crown Court on March 22.

He was sentenced today (May 5) and received 40 months in prison. Ray has also been put on the Sex Offenders Register and a Sexual Harm Prevention Order prevents him having contact with people under the age of 16.

Last month Sean and his team returned to Iceland and completed the challenge.

Cambridge scientists say the benefits of outdoor exercise outweighs the harm from pollution

The benefits of cycling and walking outweigh the negative impact on health from air pollution, according to researchers at the University of Cambridge and the UEA.

Experts say regular outdoor exercise reduces the risk of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and several cancers. But concerns have been raised about the impact pollution could have on those exercising in such a way.

The study concluded that only 1% of cities in the World Health Organisation's Ambient Air Pollution Database had pollution levels high enough that the risks of air pollution could start to overcome the benefits of physical activity after half an hour of cycling every day.

"Even in Delhi, one of the most polluted cities in the world - with pollution levels ten times those in London - people would need to cycle over five hours per week before the pollution risks outweigh the health benefits."

Scientific breakthrough could boost fertility treatment

The study will allow scientists to study the development of an embryo beyond the stage when it would normally

Scientists at Cambridge university have developed a controversial technique which allows them to keep an embryo growing in a laboratory for up to 13 days.

The legal limit in the UK is 14 days after fertilisation.

Two international teams of scientists, including British researchers, were able to maintain living embryos under lab conditions for up to day 13 of development.

They say it'll allow them to study the development of an embryo more closely.

"Implantation is a milestone in human development as it is from this stage onwards that the embryo really begins to take shape and the overall body plan are decided.

This new technique provides us with a unique opportunity to get a deeper understanding of our own development during these crucial stages."
