Our son took his own life because of Snapchat bullies

Sam Abel was a bright and funny 14 year old all set to make his mark on the world - until he committed suicide earlier this year, falling to his death from a supermarket car park.

His parents believe he was bullied to death - tormented both at school and via social media app Snapchat.

It’s a story that closely echoes that of Megan Evans, who also took her own life this year following online bullying, and whose mum Nicola inspired our Be Kind campaign with a hugely emotional interview back in February.

Sam’s heartbroken parents Anita and Mark join us alongside Nicola to share their story.

Shayne Ward: 'If I was Aidan, I would literally run right now!'

If I was Aidan, I would literally run right now, because Eva is a woman scorned

– Shayne Ward

It’s the Corrie storyline with plenty of Sex Factor: Aidan’s affair with Maria, who just happens to be his fiancée Eva’s best friend. With the love triangle set to take an even more dramatic turn, Shayne Ward warns us to stand by for some serious fireworks, as Eva sets out to prove that revenge really is a dish best served cold.

Shayne joins us to discuss the explosive storyline - as well as revealing that people often struggle to separate him from his character!

Term-time holidays: 'If I knew what I know today, I would have paid £60'

Genuinely it’s a badge of honour, I’m quite happy to be a criminal for taking my daughter on holiday. If it’s a price I have to pay, it’s a price I’ll accept.

– Jon Platt

It’s been going on for more than two years and has resonated with parents everywhere - but now the landmark legal battle between education chiefs and a father who took his daughter on holiday in term-time is finally over. Found guilty on Friday when the case returned to the magistrates’ court, Jon Platt tells us he will now pay the fine and admits that, with hindsight, he wouldn’t have challenged it in the first place.

How safe are your kitchen appliances?

As police reveal the Grenfell Tower fire started in a Hotpoint fridge-freezer which wasn't subject to a safety recall but is now at the centre of a government investigation, we ask: how safe is your fridge?

The London Fire Brigade has long been calling for plastic-backed models to be banned in the UK, releasing shocking video footage to emphasise how quickly a blaze can take hold. And what about your other kitchen appliances? Do they also pose a fire risk?

Consumer editor Alice Beer is here to talk through the potential dangers - and what can be done to lessen them, alongside Dave Sibert, a former fire fighter who is now the National Fire Safety Advisor to the Fire Brigades Union.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM HOTPOINT

Consumers who believe they may have a Hotpoint fridge freezer model number FF175BP (white) or FF175BG (grey) should call our freephone hotline on 0800 316 3826 or visit hotpointservice.co.uk/fridgefreezer so that we can register their details and contact them with further information.
