London Lite Thursday, 20 August 2009 15 Five held for brutal attack on cyclist dad Magazine pages brought to life THE PRESSURES on Kerry Katona were clearly too much for her as she collapsed in the street while on holiday. She was seen walking hand in hand with her estranged husband Mark Croft, but she suddenly slumped to the pavement, apparently in tears, as he tried to comfort her. The bankrupt former Atomic Kitten is reportedly planning to sell her 1m Cheshire home in an attempt to clear her debts and avoid repossession. Her 250,000 advertising deal with Iceland supermarkets fell through on Monday after she was captured on film apparently snorting a white substance. After being questioned by police over the alleged drugs video, Katona, 28, flew to Tenerife with her children, where they were joined by Croft, 39. She has kicked out the former taxi driver several times over his alleged infidelities and freeloading, but despite her numerous threats of divorce she keeps taking him back. It was also reported today that Katona has been buying cocaine using some of the 2,100 a month sent by ex- husband Brian McFadden to support their two children. FUTURISTIC Harry Potter-style video advertisements could soon be a regular feature in newspapers and magazines. Next months Entertainment Weekly in the US will carry inside an embedded wafer-thin, full-motion video about the size of a mobile phone screen. The pilot by broadcaster CBS and PepsiCo will work like a singing greetings card, the video being triggered when a reader turns the right page. Thousands of subscribers in New York and Los Angeles will be the first to see videos promoting CBS shows and a diet cola aimed at men. The liquid crystal screen is 2.7mm thick, has a USB jack on the back and will handle 40 minutes of video using a 70-minute rechargeable battery. by mark blunden Beaten: Felipe David was critically ill today Take the peanuts to a higher place and set the chicken free.

CocaineKerrygoesinto meltdownonherhols POLICE hunting a gang over the attempted murder of a cyclist have arrested a man and four teenagers. The five were seized in separate raids in Surrey this morning. The cyclist, father-of-two Felipe David, was knocked off his bike and severely beaten in a quiet residential lane in Ewell at 9.30pm on Tuesday. He remained in critical condition in hospital today with serious head injuries. Three 16-year-olds, an 18-year-old and a 20-year-old were being interviewed in connection with the attack. Surrey Police say there is no obvious link between Mr David and his attackers, who could have mistaken him for someone else. The victim tried to flee but one attacker, who was also on a bike, chased him and dragged him from his cycle. Officers say Mr Davids head injuries are so severe they are treating the attack as attempted murder. Local resident Joe Johnson, 22, who found Mr David in the road, said: Ive never seen so much blood. It was stream- ing down his face. It was like a scene from a horror film. Two older people had stopped to help him. They tried to put him in the recovery position but he kept moving around. He was very confused and worried about his bike. Resident Henry Smith, 47, said: People are afraid to speak out in case the people who did this come after them. Detective Chief Inspector Maria Woodall said Mr David may have had an altercation with the gang before he was chased.
