A mother in Northampton has escaped harm after she found a flesh-eating spider in her bed.
A British soldier who survived a rogue attack in Afghanistan that left five of his comrades dead is facing a substantial jail term last night after he admitted killing his 19-month-old daughter upon his return to the UK.
Lance Corporal Liam Culverhouse from Northampton was shot six times in the face and hit in both arms and legs when a renegade Afghan policeman opened fire at a checkpoint in Helmand Province.
The 25-year-old only escaped with his life by playing dead while the rampaging gunman stood over him, but lost his right eye in the 2009 incident.
He was flown back to the UK for treatment but 18 months after returning home he attacked his seven-week-old daughter, Khloe Abrams, which resulted in her suffering severe injuries.
She was taken to hospital following the attack, in May 2011, which took place at the family home in Northampton, but never recovered and eventually died in a children's hospice in November last year.
Culverhouse, of Kingsthorpe, Northampton, pleaded guilty to causing or allowing the death of Khloe Abrams when he appeared at Nottingham Crown Court yesterday.
Khloe's mother, 25-year-old Clare Abrams, of Abington, Northampton, denied the offence, and walked free from court after prosecutors decided to offer no evidence.

Corporal Hannah Campbell, from Northamptonshire, was serving with 19 Tank -Transporter Squadron in 2007 when an insurgent mortar hit the building she was guarding in Basra.
Doctors battled to save her shattered leg through 19 painful operations but in the end she needed a final operation to -remove it below the knee.
She was told by medics the chances of a brother or sister for her young daughter Milly were extremely slim.
But the 29-year-old has now been told she is pregnant with her second child, due in April.
Cpl Campbell told ITV Daybreak: "We're so excited now we just find ourselves looking at other people's babies and thinking I didn't have the chance to do all those nice things again."
Six people will appear before a Nursing and Midwifery disciplinary panel on Monday, accused of care failings at a nursing home.

The residents were aged from 83 to 100 and died between 22 July and 6 August 2009.
