A spokesman for Scotland Yard revealed 82 of the photographs were in the most serious category.

Further delays expected on East Coast main line

Rail passengers due to use the East Coast main line are being urged to delay their travel after an overhead wire problem prompted huge disruption to the service at the end of the bank holiday weekend.

A spokesman for the rail provider said the problems were likely to cause further delays at the start of service tomorrow.

Network Rail engineers have been working through the night to restore the overhead power lines, however, it is currently unlikely that this work will be completed in time for the start of this morning's services. As a consequence, East Coast trains are expected to be severely restricted, and cancellations are likely throughout the day.

Customers are advised to defer travel until later in the day, or alternatively, to travel tomorrow if possible. Tickets dated for travel on Monday or Tuesday will be valid for travel on Wednesday and customers are advised to try to travel as close as possible to their original booked time.

Man brutally attacked in own home 'felt utterly stupid'

A burglary victim who was left with life-changing injuries after being beaten by masked men in his home told This Morning he felt "utterly stupid" after the attack.

University lecturer Paul Kohler explained it was not out-of-ordinary for the doorbell to ring at 10pm at his London home as he has four teenage daughters and "the door's always going".

Asked what was going through his mind at the time of the attack, he said, "You're totally bewildered of course and you feel totally stupid because your home is where you feel most secure, and suddenly you've let this hostile force into your home".

Mr Kohler, whose wife and children were upstairs when his attackers burst in, said, "You realise these people have started hitting, you know you've got vulnerable members of the family upstairs so you try and fight back."
