My husband kidnapped our baby

Twenty-seven-month-old Talia, the daughter of Gosia Szymanowicz was just 15 weeks old when Gosia's estranged husband (and Talia's father) kidnapped the infant while they were out shopping as a family in Cardiff.

Maher Belaid took Talia from the safety of their Barry home and travelled to war-torn Libya to be with his family. On his return to the UK earlier this year, Maher was arrested and admitted to the charge of abduction. Just over a week ago he was sentenced to six and a half years in jail, while Talia remains in Libya.

The court heard that there was no prospect of Talia being returned home, and Gosia is here today to tell us she's terrified that she'll never see her daughter again.

Kellie Maloney: My sex-change surgery nightmare

If I don't have it done my journey will never be complete

– Kellie Maloney on having further surgery

We all remember the shock last August when boxing promoter Frank Maloney announced he was now living as a woman and wanted to be known as Kellie. As a 61-year-old in a sport not known for its tolerance, Kellie always knew her transition wasn’t going to be straightforward.

But three weeks ago, after surgery abroad to make her face look more feminine, Kellie suffered complications that left her in intensive care and, as she puts it, with a face “like a Halloween mask”. Kellie is still recovering from the ordeal, which has left her too distraught to leave the house. But she insists she will go ahead with the most important operation of all – the six-hour, final sex-change operation to become a woman.

We are also joined by Kellie’s 38-year-old daughter Emma, who has made Kellie promise not to have any more cosmetic surgery on her face.

Tonight on Channel 4 a groundbreaking documentary airs called The Paedophile Next Door which looks at the devastating effect paedophiles have had on society but also how the current approach to tackling child abuse is not working.

Today we're joined by two people who appear in the film: senior lecturer Dr Sarah Goode, who believes society needs to stop the witch hunt and offer paedophiles treatment instead, and Ian McFadyen who was repeatedly raped by his teacher in the 70s and who comes face to face with a self-confessed paedophile in the documentary.
