Didn't she (Mandy's mum) then go out with his son or something? It was a very odd set-up.
Mum nearly married him, iirc. It was sickening. Mandy was basically given up to him by her mother at 13.
It was an odd set-up. Mandy's mum, called Patsy, did marry Bill Wyman's son. They may well still be together. So the Smiths and Wymans are still in-laws. This could be a reason why the Smiths would not have wanted Bill Wyman criminally investigated/ prosecuted over his relationship with Mandy.

Yesterday on Radio 5 a former Scotland Yard officer and Jeff Edwards a crime reporter for the Daily Mirror talked about the naming of people arrested.

Both agreed not the police not naming a person till charged was not a problem. They pointed out it has been long standing practice for the police only to confirm the sex, age and location of a person arrested.

The former police officer in particular had strong views, pointing out sub juidice was from the point of arrest, as both The Sun and Daily Mirror learnt despite no charges being brought against Christopher Jeffries they were found guilty of contempt of court.

The crime reporter agreed with the former police officer that that it is impatience rather the right to know that drives the public and press to want to name an arrested person.

Well, if they don't know the name how are they supposed to crucify them on social media?

They could just pull the names of a couple of suitable targets, who may actually be innocent, out of the hat I guess.

One boy committed suicide by throwing himself off the Belfast to Liverpool ferry rather than return to Kincora Boys Home.

Stuart Hall due in Preston Crown Court today. The case was adjourned until 16 April when he is expected to enter a plea. A provisional trial date has been set for 2 October.

McAlpine - Bercow too, although neither of them will be there, just lawyers I think

I notice Fergus Shanahan executive editor of The Sun was charged yesterday with illegal payments to a public official.

Alison Levitt from Crown Prosecution Service said Mr Shanahan will appear at Westminster Magistrates Court next month on a charge of conspiring to commit misconduct in public office.
That's FERGUS SHANAHAN of The Sun has been charged with wrong doing.

Me too, out of everyone being arrested and named over the last year, he's the one I really wanted to be innocent

Hope he is.

I really wish that the people that have been questioned would either be charged or told they will not be charged; some have been waiting for about five months.

I wonder why the media now allows itself to name someone when the police have not done so:
http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-22212131
The Metropolitan Police did not name Mr Harris after he was first questioned or following his arrest and have still not formally identified him. He is described by them as Yewtree 5.
