Emmerdale spoilers: Harriet Finch tries to save Dawn and brings her to the village after nasty showdown with her pimp

The vicar – played by Katherine Dow Blyton – is desperate to track the drug addict down and enlists Charity’s son Ryan Stocks to help her, but will he succeed?

Ryan schemes and makes a call to Dawn’s phone pretending to be a punter who wants to pay her for sex.

Later he and Harriet arrive at the rough end of town where Harriet comes face-to-face with Dawn again.

She has a huge confrontation with Dawn’s pimp but finally manages to get her to return to the village with her.

Harriet then tries her hardest to get through to Dawn, wanting her to stay. Will Dawn stick around and will she be able to make friends in the village after alienating Rhona Goskirk and Pete Barton already?

Dawn – played by telly newcomer Olivia Bromley – was first introduced when she hooked up with Ross Barton and helped him track down Simon McManus, the man who threw acid in his face.

She returned recently looking for Ross after having been attacked by a punter. She broke into the house he used to share with his brother Pete but was apprehended by Rhona who wanted to help her.

It’s been revealed that Dawn has a secret history which she shares with police officer turned vicar Harriet. The secret hasn’t been revealed on screen yet but it’s sure to leave fans of the ITV soap stunned.

Mets, Yankees involved in three-way trade discussions with Marlins on J.T. Realmuto

LAS VEGAS – Only in Las Vegas.

In his bold pursuit of Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto, Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen raised the stakes – having dangled Noah Syndergaard and courted the Yankees in an attempt to make it happen.

As first reported by The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal, the Yanks, Mets and Marlins have discussed three-team trade scenarios that would put Realmuto behind the plate at Citi Field.

As per reports, and including an industry source, there were no deals in the works on Monday night, the first full day of baseball’s Winter Meetings at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

But the concept is tantalizing to say the least.

The need for Yankees’ prospects and/or controllable big-league talent could be required to complete any such deal, negating the prospect haul that a team like the Dodgers provide.

And the idea of Syndergaard moving into the Yanks’ rotation to facilitate such a deal was just one of many different trade discussions the Mets have had according to a source. 

But talk about a high-limit game…

Seahawks defender trolls Kirk Cousins after fumble return for touchdown: ‘You like that!!!’

The Minnesota Vikings lost another primetime game with Kirk Cousins under center, and this one brought the $84 million man to 0-7 on Monday Night Football. 

Cousins had a chance to begin a comeback, but with just under three minutes to play down 14-0, the Seahawks sealed the game with a strip sack of Cousins that was returned for a touchdown by Seattle cornerback Justin Coleman. 

Shortly after the game, Coleman had some fun at Cousins' expense, tweeting the clip of his touchdown with the caption, "You like that!!" in reference to Cousins' viral video after a 2015 comeback win when he played for the Redskins.

This Little Girl’s Reaction to Meeting Kate Middleton Will Brighten Your Day

As they began a busy day of royal activities, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge visited Evelina London Children’s Hospital on Tuesday morning. The duchess has just been named the hospital’s patron and, according to Kensington Palace, will use this new role to “champion the medical professionals working on the front-line in children’s healthcare, and shine a light on their work supporting children in their early years.”

She wasted no time getting to work, meeting some of the children currently receiving care at the hospital. As she and William arrived, they were greeted by one girl who had an adorable reaction to being in the presence of royalty. As Kate and William both crouched down to shake her hand, the little girl, who also handed the duchess a bouquet of flowers, threw her head back and giggled, flashing a huge grin at the cameras.

Survivor of Russia's 'Werewolf' serial killer tells how she woke up in a MORGUE after he raped her and left her for dead

Evil Mikhail Popkov was on Monday sentenced to life in jail for 56 murders on top of 22 for which he was earlier convicted.

Svetlana Misyavitchus survived a ruthless attack by the 54-year-old former cop and has spoken of her ordeal – and how he wrecked her life.

Misyavitchus said she was a 17-year-old virgin when she was returning home in the cold from a friend’s house in her city of Angarsk.

A police car stopped and the driver offered her a lift.

She said: “I thought it’s safe to go with a policeman. I was so cold  from head to toes so I accepted.”


She remembers that he drove past her house and she asked him: “Where are we going?”

The next thing she recalled was him “repeatedly banging my head against a tree" – it seemed "to go on for an eternity".

She added: “I was shaking, he wanted to rape me. He was mute – he didn’t respond to anything.

“He said nothing. I crawled out from under him and ran to his car. I was hoping to find car keys there – but failed.

“He caught me and I tripped down some steps.”



She was wounded but found some passers-by who refused to help her.

She then saw Popkov’s car approaching her through bushes by the side of a main road.

He attacked her again and left her for dead.

She said: “The next I knew, I woke up in a morgue. I woke up, sat down, and spotted a label on the toe of a corpse next to me.

“I woke up in a hospital later.”

She was listed as being 25, but her mother found and rescued her.

Half her hair was torn out during the Popkov attack and she was paralysed down one side of her body.


When she was discharged a few months later, her hair had turned grey.

The now 37-year-old said: “His attack aged me by seven years. My brain was damaged.

“If not for him, I would have had a normal life, had a family, and given birth to great kids.”

The other known survivor is Evgeniya Protasova, 36, who unlike Svetlana managed two build a normal life after her brutal rape and attack.

In common with his other attacks, he struck her over the head, stripped her naked, and raped her.

She said: "It happened in July 1999, when I was 18. My boyfriend had invited me to a restaurant, and we left it about midnight.

"He wanted me to go to his place but I strongly refused, and asked him to take me home.

"Then he got angry and shouted that I could go home on my own."

Like Svetlana, the policeman offered her a lift.

He was plain-clothed but showed her his officer’s ID.

Popkov used this tactic repeatedly, sometimes wearing his uniform, to lure women, often as they walked along the pavement slightly tipsy after a drink.

He even told them they should get a lift home from a policeman because – as all locals knew – there was a rapist and serial killer at large in Angarsk at the time.

Bravely, Evgeniya agreed to the trauma of seeing the killer face-to-face as investigators sought crucial evidence that he was “The Werewolf”.


RUSSIA'S WORST SERIAL KILLERS

  • “Chessboard killer” Alexander Pichushkin is a close second behind The Werewolf, after he killed an estimated 62 people in Moscow, with 48 bodies found (years active: 1992-2006)
  • "Rostov Ripper" Andre Chikatilo murdered over 56 women and children for 12 years throughout the Soviet Union before being caught (years active: 1978 – 1990)
  • Rich noblewoman Darya Nikolayevna Saltykova murdered serfs on her estate, with 38 proven victims but a possible total of 147 (years active: 1755-1762)
  • The "Wolf of Moscow" Vasili Komaroff bludgeoned and stabbed 33 men to death in a stable while working as a horse-trader (years active: 1921-1923)
  • A family of robbers, led by Inessa Tarverdiyeva and her husband, murdered 30 people between 2007-2013
  • Sergei Ryakhovsky, dubbed "The Hippopotamus" because of his thick neck, killed 19 prostitutes and homosexuals in order to "cleanse" society (years active: 1988-1993)
  • Alcoholic "Satan in a Skirt" Irina Gaidmachuk killed 17 elderly women to fund her vodka addiction (years active: 2002-2010)
  • "Doctor Death" Maxim Petrov killed 12 of his patients over just one year (years active: 1999-2000)
  • Viktor Fokin, known variously as the "Pensioner Maniac" and the "Grandfather Ripper" lured at least ten prostitutes and drinkers in his home before killing and dismembering them (years active: 1996-2000)

She added: "I have a good family now – I am married with two children, I have a son and a daughter.

“I had never told my husband what I had to go through, but I must say I had been living under a huge pressure inside. This story just did not go away.”

Popkov was said by state investigators to have been shocked that any of his victims, who he attacked with axes, hammers, knives, screwdrivers, and spades, had survived.

After he received his life sentence yesterday, a prosecutor said: “He clearly loved killing. Some victims had 145, or even 170 knife wounds.

“He said that he felt satisfied when he felt their pain as they were stabbed."

WWE news: Cody Rhodes rejected Vince McMahon's company 'weeks ago' as he teases potential All:In 2

The star, son of WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes and brother to Dustin “Goldust”, has enjoyed a stunning run of success since his departure from WWE in 2016.

The current IWGP US Heavyweight Champion wrestled at the world famous Tokyo Dome and recently produced the historic ALL:In pay-per-view.

But his contract with Ring of Honor has just expired, leading to speculation he could be heading back to Vince McMahon’s company.

Rhodes, 33, is currently touring the UK and appeared on Bruce Pritchard’s Something To Wrestle show.

And when quizzed about a return to the place he made his name, he said he had “passed on the WWE offer a few weeks ago.”


Rhodes, undoubtedly one of the biggest wrestling talents on the planet, was also asked about putting on an ALL:In 2.

He responded: “Hypothetically, would it necessarily be ‘All In 2’… or ‘All In: International’?


WRESTLEMANIA Tickets, best way to get there and rumoured matches


“There are two major territories outside of the US in terms of wrestling: the UK and Australia. If you put up a ring, they [the fans] will come.”

Despite his contract already expiring, Rhodes will perform for Ring of Honor at this month’s Final Battle event against World Champion Jay Lethal.

Cobra bite to cure erectile dysfunction

FEW wrestling fans from the 90s will forget seeing Jake "The Snake" Roberts’ cobra biting “Macho Man” Randy Savage’s arm.

Despite it being 27 years ago, the incident still remains one of the most harrowing ever seen in WWE.

The shocking event cemented Roberts’ place as one of the most evil heels in the industry’s history.

But now the veteran is using it to bolster something else rather than his career – his libido!

Kendall Jenner flashes nipples in sheer gown at British Fashion Awards

Kendall Jenner is known for wearing some daring looks on the red carpet. Remember THIS killer outfit from Cannes Film Festival back in May?

And last night was no different as the Keeping Up With The Kardashians star arrived at The British Fashion Awards in London yesterday evening wearing a totally see-through gold dress.

More: Yes, girl! Kendall Jenner perfectly shuts down trolls who criticised her acne at the Golden Globes 2018

Just. Look.

Not leaving much to the imagination, supermodel Kendall’s bronze mesh gown featured a sexy thigh-high slit, statement shoulders and a totally open back.

Choosing to go without a bra, the 23-year-old wore a flesh-toned thong under the dress which showed off that amazing figure.

Completing the outfit – which was designed by Julien Macdonald – Kendall added a pair of dangly gold earrings, strappy nude heels, and styled her hair in a sleek bun.

This isn’t the first time Kendall has decided to wear a nearly-naked dress on the red carpet.

In fact, back at the 2017 Met Gala, the reality star went for a black version of the slinky number which she also chose to wear with no underwear.

Meanwhile, the style stakes were high over at the Fashion Award ceremony as Victoria Beckham hit the red carpet with husband David and son Brooklyn.

VB looked amazing in one of her own designs, a black jumpsuit with wrap front detailing with pockets, high neckline and open back.

The likes of Alexa Chung, Winnie Harlow and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley also graced the star-studded line up.

Even Meghan Markle made a surprise appearance at to present the honour for British Designer of the Year Womenswear.

The Duchess of Sussex, who is expecting her first child with Prince Harry in the spring, looked sensational in a black one-shoulder velvet gown as she told the audience: ‘It’s such a pleasure to be here, celebrating British fashion and British designers, in my new home in the UK.’

Autistic man claims police assaulted him during Anonymous’ march

Autistic man claims police assaulted him and called him a ‘t**t’ during Anonymous’ Guy Fawkes Night protest outside Parliament as he sues the Met

  • Jed Miller, 26, was accused of inciting crowd that pushed against police officers  
  • Says he was wrongfully detained and unable to access fibromyalgia medication 
  • Metropolitan Police accused him of assault but prosecutors dropped the case 

Jed Miller (pictured in January last year outside the Central London County Court during an evcition battle) is suing police over alleged assault, false imprisonment and malicious prosecution 

An autistic man who claims he was assaulted and branded a ‘t**t’ by police during a Guy Fawkes Night protest outside Parliament is suing the Met.

Jed Miller was among the hundreds of activists who attended the Anonymous group’s ‘Million Mask March’ in November 2012.

The 26-year-old was accused of inciting the Parliament Square crowd and pushing a police officer, but the Crown Prosecution Service dropped the case within five months.

Mr Miller – who has Asperger’s, fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome – says his arrest, detention and prosecution was a strain on his health.

And he is now suing Metropolitan Police Commissioner, Cressida Dick, on behalf of the force, at Central London County Court. 

He claims he was assaulted, falsely imprisoned and maliciously prosecuted.

Giving evidence before Judge Alan Saggerson and a jury, Mr Miller said the allegation he assaulted police was ‘news to me’.

He said that he was toward the back of a group when pushing against the police line began and the officers began pushing back.

Mr Miller described himself as stuck in the noisy crowd, being pushed and shoved in all directions by protesters and the police officers.

‘The police were just pushing people indiscriminately,’ the self-described anarchist told the jury.

‘At one point, a woman who I didn’t know had fallen over behind me and I was pushed over the top of her.’

He said the situation had calmed and he was getting ready to go home to bed when he was arrested.


  • Victims of rape and sexual assault are less likely to report…

‘I was saying “goodbye” to my friends and, the next thing I knew, six police officers burst through the police line, grabbed me and said I was under arrest,’ he said.

‘They grabbed me, dragged me through the police line and told me I was being arrested for assault. The PC called me a “t**t”.

‘When I challenged him, he said: “There’s six of us and one of you. What are you going to do about it?”.’

Mr Miller says he was grabbed and restrained by the arms before being put in handcuffs.

He was taken to Charing Cross Police Station, where he was held for 15 hours and charged with assault the following afternoon.

The activist denied assaulting police or inciting the crowd to push against officers at the Anonymous demonstration last year (pictured, Parliament Square during the protest) 

Mr Miller was unable to get his medication and, because of the stress and his medical conditions, he was left feeling ‘very very anxious’, he said.

Five months later, the prosecution was dropped after the CPS decided it was ‘not necessary in the public interest’.

In the meantime, he suffered sleepless nights and had to increase his fibromyalgia medication because stress makes it worse, he said.

The force denies that the arrest was unlawful, that Mr Miller was assaulted or that the prosecution was malicious.

He had twice assaulted a police officer by pushing him, and had incited the crowd by yelling ‘charge’, Met lawyers claim.

Mr Miller said he attended the protest, organised by Anonymous, because it was ‘a more interesting way of spending a Monday night’.

And he told the jury that the form of anarchism he ascribes to does not involve a complete rejection of the rule of law. The hearing continues.

Last year, Mr Miller and fellow members of the Autonomous Nation of Anarchist Libertarians took over the £15million mansion owned by Russian oligarch Andrey Goncharenko in Eaton Square, West London. 

After setting up a ‘safe space’ for the homeless, the squatters were attacked by a gang of masked men who hurled missiles and abuse in January 2017.

They were reportedly taking part in a peaceful poetry workshop when about a dozen thugs attacked the Belgravia mansion. After a Central London County Court battle they were evicted from the property.

Every Photo from Kate Middleton's Holiday Visit to Her New Patronage, Evelina Children's Hospital

Kate Middleton made a special visit to Evelina London Children’s Hospital, where she just announced she has become a patron, on Tuesday.

Kate and Prince William were greeted by a young girl who gave them a bouquet of flowers. 

Kate even received a cute curtsy from the youngster!

Through visits to hospitals and hospices, Kate has seen firsthand the impact that comprehensive care and support can have upon young children.

The palace says her patronage of Evelina London “provides an opportunity to champion the medical professionals working on the front-line in children’s healthcare, and shine a light on their work supporting children in their early years.”

Kate, 36, looked ready for the holidays in a green dress covered in white polka dots by LK Bennett. She completed the look with a matching green L.K. Bennett “Dora” clutch and matching heels – both of which the royal mom used at an outing just last week, keeping up her go-to move of recycling pieces from her closet!

One young patient – 12-year-old Esme Orbell, who has been coming to see the specialists at the hospital as she has right hemiplegia – says of Kate, “She was so polite and lovely, and talked to everyone. She wished me a happy Christmas.”

Her mother, Jackie, adds that they came to London from Bury St. Edmonds, in Suffolk, for the appointment today. “We have been coming here for eight years and to have the royals come in today has made it really special for her. It made our trip worthwhile.”

William spoke about football injury with one young boy while Kate chatted with young moms holding babies.

Kate got help from Cruz Brown, 4, when it came time to unveil a banner which features Cruz.

Kate gave another boy a lift to check out a mural celebrating the hospital’s 150th anniversary, which is coming up next year. 

William knelt down to chat with an excited girl in a wheelchair during their visit.
