A man convicted of strangling his wife to death and dismembering her body has been denied parole.

Mitchell Quy spent 18 months making TV appeals for his wife Lynsey to come home after she went missing in 1998.

All the while knowing he had killed her and hidden her body in Southport with the help of his brother.

Quy was jailed for life in January 2001. He cannot reapply for parole for another year.

Specialist counselling for Edge Hill University students caught up in terror attack

Edge Hill University students caught up in the London terrorist attack will be offered help from specialist counsellors from the 'Foundation for Peace' in Warrington.

The charity set up by Colin Parry who lost his son in the IRA bombing in the town, offers counselling for victims of terrorist attacks.

Thirteen students and one member of staff were in London for a trip to the Houses of Parliament.

Four students were injured when the attacker drove a car into pedestrians on Westminster Bridge.

I have to say the students have been incredibly resilient. It's been a very emotional experience for them and varying degrees of upset and trauma.

One of the things we'll be focussing on is the emotional as well as practical support we can provide.

They may well be our best friend, but their behaviour can cost us thousands. Research released by Dogs Trust, the UK’s largest dog welfare charity, has revealed that dogs with problem behaviours cost the average North West dog owner £335.88 a year, equating to £4030.56 over the average dog’s lifetime. Shoes topped that list, with 58 per cent of dog owners in the North West replacing at least one pair of shoes a month.

Nearly a third of dog owners identified that their dogs displayed destructive behaviour when left alone. The charity is urging dog owners to consider getting their beloved animals trained to improve behaviour.
