Meet the boy with 'no brain' who defied medical expectations

It’s a very emotive subject - some people say you can’t grown a brain, some say his brain was there, all squashed up, so when he’s had his shunt fitted, it’s gone back to where it should be - but if his brain was so squashed up, he should have been so severely mentally disabled

– Noah's dad Rob

Six-year-old Noah Wall has continued to baffle medical experts after being born with spina bifida and just two per cent of his brain.

Despite his parents being told there was little chance of survival, Noah has defied expectations - and even shown signs of brain growth.

Noah's parents Shelly and Rob have devoted themselves to his development, travelling to Australia for treatment at NeuroPhysics Therapy.

It’s this unique treatment that has helped Noah sit up unaided, kneel on all fours and even attempt to stand.

Police chief speaks of her stalker fears

When the Police and Crime Commissioner for Devon and Cornwall found herself being emotionally and physically abused by her boyfriend, she kept it to herself for months - now she's urging other victims not to make the same mistake she did.

Alison Hernandez was assaulted then stalked by her ex-partner when she ended their relationship last year. She said her role made her reluctant to report his abusive behaviour: "My job is to protect the vulnerable, so to present myself as vulnerable to the police was a difficult thing to do."

She also spoke of the impact stalking has on victims: "It does affect you - it affects your everyday life and it affects you psychologically, I think that’s the bit that’s really challenging around stalking as it’s really hard to prove that in a court."

Finally, she advised anyone concerned about stalking to keep a diary and speak out: "It’s really important to keep a diary log - I pretty much handed that over to the police, so it meant they could arrest him quite quickly."

Vince Cable admits he’s been in discussion with Labour leavers for six months

I don’t think we are talking about a joint party but an alliance of some kind

– Leader of the Liberal Democrat party Vince Cable

Vince Cable told Good Morning Britain how he has been talking to some of the Labour MPs who quit for six months, adding they would form an alliance but not a formal party.

He said: “Over the last six months we’ve been talking to some of this group. There is a very clear understanding of the way British politics works. They have had to make a statement about the nature of the Labour party and Corbyn’s leadership. We fully understand that. If there is any sense and I’m sure there will be there is a recognition that we have troops on the ground, we have the best part of 200 councillors, we have 1000,000 member, we have an infrastructure.

“I don’t think we are talking about a joint party but an alliance of some kind working in Parliament and outside."

'The irony isn’t lost' on pregnant ISIS bride pleading to return to UK, says Security Minister

Security Minister Ben Wallace has commented on 19-year-old Shamima Begum’s pleas to return to the UK, four years after she fled to Syria to fight alongside ISIS.

Mr Wallace explained there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach in dealing with radicalised teenagers who want to return to the UK, but says ‘actions have consequences’ and people like Ms Begum should expect repercussions if they genuinely want to return to London.

“Not all of them are victims, some of them are. That’s going to be a difficult balance for us to deal with,” he told Good Morning Britain.

“We as a government have been incredibly clear, as have the police, that if you go and fight or support these types of organisations, there are consequences for that.”

“If you come back here, you should expect to be investigated and you should potentially expect to be charged with terrorist offences or other offences."
