Extract: Neil Entwistle, 32, convicted of murdering his wife and baby daughter at their US home has launched a formal appeal against his conviction.
Entwistle, a former IT consultant from Kilton, Worksop, formally filed an appeal yesterday after arguing he should receive a fresh trial because police searched his home without a warrant when they came to check on his family.

Extract: Selina Stacey has severe arthritis and cannot walk far. The scooter, which she had had for just six months, was set on fire outside her home in The Meadows sometime on the night of Sunday, March 25, or the next morning.
Miss Stacey, 45, said: "I have just been stuck in the house and I don't know what to do with myself. It was my taxi, it was my everything. I feel like it was my lifeline. I have been trying to think about why people would do such an evil thing to disabled people."
Miss Stacey, of Beardsley Gardens, said the first she knew about the fire was when a friend texted her.
She said the scooter was completely destroyed and was taken away as scrap.
"I just broke down when I saw it," she said. "It is just wrong to pick on people like that."

Comment: Scum kids like these who are suspected of carrying out this horrible crime, are the future of Britain - it makes me sad, angry and despondent... sick!

Initially Nottingham City Council claimed it had no plans to intervene but later changed its stance.
How many of the tents are inhabited and who are the protesters?
Here we talk to some.

Extract: Campaigner Rose Carter said a fellow protester had come out from inside the tents to calm down a passer-by, who was shouting aggressively at the group on Sunday night.
She said it led to the protester being hit in the face by the man. Miss Carter, 19, of Long Eaton, said: "He was getting very agitated and pulled down our fence and posters.
"We have had to put it all up again. He was being really aggressive and he was very drunk. This incident shows people are getting more and more aggressive towards us."
"We've had people pulling our fence down in the past and attacks of verbal abuse have become a daily occurrence."
The camp, which was set up in October last year, is currently fighting an eviction notice issued by Nottingham City Council.
