NOTARKI: LANDLORD GETS SEVEN YEARS FOR IRONING BOARD KILLING

TWICKENHAM; HAMPTON A pub landlord who used an ironing board to push an eccentric millionaire to his death under the wheels of a van was jailed for seven years today (Fri). Rostam 'Ross' Notarki, 53, rammed Charles Chatterton Hickox Jr into the road with the makeshift weapon after chasing him out of the award-winning Cardinal Wolsey gastropub. The publican had written the grey-bearded American off as a drunken pest after catching him drinking expensive wine from the bottle while talking to two ornamental mice, named Pinky and Perky. But despite his dishevelled appearance, Mr Hickox, 53, was part of a wealthy New York family and even had his own personal banker.

SHAFIQ: WANNABE JIHADI BRIDE FACES JAIL

HOUNSLOW A would-be Jihadi bride who encouraged her terrorist Facebook-fiance to travel to Syria to fight in the country's brutal civil war is today (Fri) facing jail. Angela Shafiq, 22, trawled the social networking site for people with 'Muslim-sounding names' to find postal worker turned extremist Mohammed Nahin Ahmed, 23. The pair, who have never met, discussed marriage and travelling to war-torn Syria, where Ahmed hoped to join an Islamist terrorist group called 'Kataib al Muhajireen'. Shafiq, who claims never to have been a practicing Muslim, told the Jihadi to get a first aid certificate so he could pretend to be an aid worker and helped him to renew his passport before he left the UK with childhood pal Yusuf Zubair Sarwar, 23, in May 2013.

HENRY:WOMAN USED TWIN SISTER'S IDENTITY TO TRAVEL TO SYRIA

WALTHAMSTOW A devout Muslim who used her party girl twin sister's identity to travel to Syria was spared jail today (Fri) after claiming she wanted to go to the war-torn country because she was lonely.

The Old Bailey heard how Henry, who took to wearing the hijab aged 14, had changed her appearance and adopted more western dress to look like her sister after tricking her into handing over her passport.

VIRDI: POLICE OFFICER CLEARED OF SEX ATTACK ON BOY

HOUNSLOW A Met police officer and former Labour election candidate was cleared today (Fri) of abusing a 16-year-old boy with a truncheon in the back of a police van.
