■ Novichok victim may hold key to poison riddle

INVESTIGATORS hunting a mystery vessel containing a deadly nerve agent are hoping to glean vital information from poisoning victim Charlie Rowley.

The 45-year-old may be the only person who can help detectives narrow down their search for ‘a needle in a haystack’.

Mr Rowley was left seriously ill and his partner, Dawn Sturgess, 44, died after they collapsed in Amesbury, Wiltshire, on June 30, having been exposed to novichok.

It is believed that the couple handled a vessel containing the chemical weapon, but police have admitted they have ‘no idea’ what it might look like.

Mr Rowley regained consciousness yesterday, and today Scotland Yard confirmed that officers had been able to speak to him.

■ Daughter jailed for killing and burying war hero dad in garden

A WOMAN who suffered a ‘lifetime’ of abuse from her bullying father has been jailed for nine years after she killed and buried him in her back garden after finding his horde of child abuse photographs.

Barbara Coombes found a box of photographs belonging to her father, Kenneth Coombes, 87, which contained indecent images of children, a court was told.

The 63-year-old, who had suffered 40 years of physical and verbal torment from her ‘formidable’ ex-military father, then ‘snapped’, Manchester Crown Court heard.

Feeling ‘utterly disgusted and mortified’ she walked into the living room at the family home and hit him over the back of the head with the shovel.

Coombes, a ‘quiet and timid middle-aged lady’ who had never been in trouble with the police, continued a series of elaborate lies to her family and the authorities for 12 years until suspicions were raised by housing officials.

On January 7 this year, the day before a home visit by a housing officer to see her father was due, she walked into her local police station and confessed.

■ Woman convicted over 10 neo-Nazi murders in Germany

A MUNICH court has found the main defendant in a high-profile neo-Nazi trial guilty of murder over the killing of 10 people — most of them migrants.

The victims were gunned down between 2000 and 2007 in a case that shocked Germany.

Judges have sentenced Beate Zschaepe to life in prison.

The 43-year-old was arrested in 2011, shortly after her two accomplices were found dead in an apparent murder-suicide.

Together with the men, Uwe Mundlos and Uwe Boehnhardt, she had formed the National Socialist Underground, which pursued an ideology of white racial supremacy by targeting migrants, mostly of Turkish origin.
