London Lite Friday, 2 October 2009 11 A TV COMPANY was today fined 80,000 after wrongly naming Ant and Dec as winners of a phone poll at the 2005 British Comedy Awards. The error meant the duo had to hand back their Peoples Choice Award which was given to the real winner, Catherine Tate. Ofcom fined Channel TV for being reckless and not ensuring the phone vote was fair. The scam emerged after it came to light that the second half of the 11pm live awards was in fact recorded between 10.30pm and 11pm, so later votes werent counted.

The body of James Taylor, 11, was discovered by police officers called to the home he shared with his mother, Jennifer Taylor, in New Ash Green, Kent on 2 December. At a hearing in March, Taylor, 45, denied murdering her son, but later pleaded guilty to manslaughter on grounds of diminished responsibility. Sentencing her at Maidstone Crown Court today, Judge Andrew Patience QC called the case an appalling human tragedy in which the life of a happy, bright, boy was wasted. Paramedics found Ms Taylor with multiple stab wounds to her thighs, breasts, wrists and arms, which were all self-inflicted, after she called them to say she had killed her son and tried to kill herself. She told them she had wanted the two of them to die so they could be in a better place as she feared that if she alone died, James would be taken into care. By the time of his death she had accrued debts of nearly 290,000, had been forced to twice remortgage her house, had six credit cards and said her phone was constantly ringing with creditors chasing her debts, the court heard. When computer experts looked at her internet activity they found searches referring to suicide through debt, taking a child through suicide, and drowning as my heart keeps pounding. This was despite receiving 1,000 a month in child maintenance from Jamessfather,MohammedAl-Rafaey, a successful Syrian national. Mr Al-Rafaey,wholivesinAbuDhabi,had never met his son but had agreed to financially support and pay for his private education until he turned 18. Miss Taylor confided her money woes in her sister and close friends, whobecameworriedabouthermental state and insisted she visited her GP.
