BBC Family & Education News - Parental Alienation | Facebook
Nikki Jenkins and Susanna Cooper from the Family & Education Facebook page sourced a really interesting story about parental alienation which is when one parent turns a child against the other parent. Branwen Jeffries and Katherine Smith then developed the story for the Ten and for online. Because of the sensitive nature of the story, the parent’s story was anonymised using animation by Sumi Senthinathan – this is a digital first story and an example of how to tell an important story which has issues of anonymity.

When a 21-year-old woman asked a weight loss forum for advice on how to deal with her boyfriend making comments about her appearance, one widower's response moved many to reflect on how we treat our loved ones.

The widower replied to the young woman to share how he was full of regret for not being more supportive of his late wife when she struggled with her body image.

The emotional exchange in the r/LoseIt area of Reddit has prompted many to consider the ways in which couples support one another.

In a post titled "I'm losing weight but my partner is still giving me a hard time about my appearance", the woman explained that her boyfriend often made jibes relating to her weight.

She wrote: "We were going swimming the other day and I commented that the water was cold, I was met with the response 'trust me you have more than enough insulation'".

Many people responded to offer supportive words to the woman, with one person commenting "you can do and deserve better".

A number of others suggested she leave her relationship and "run for the hills".

Daniel Love (left) has taken his case to the High Court of Australia
An Aboriginal man has launched legal action against Australia over what he argues is an attempt to deport him to Papua New Guinea (PNG).

Daniel Love, 39, was born in PNG but has lived in Australia since he was five. He has a PNG mother and Aboriginal Australian father.

He does not have Australian citizenship and had his visa cancelled last month after serving a jail term.

Immigration officials say they cannot comment publicly on the case.

Lawyers for Love argue that he cannot be expelled from Australia because he is an indigenous man whose father is an Australian citizen.

"Because Daniel is a member of the Aboriginal race and he is a member of the Australian community, he should not be penalised by laws regarding naturalisation and aliens," law firm Maurice Blackburn said in a statement to the BBC.

TV presenter and comedy writer Denis Norden has died aged 96
One day, three young comics went to find some lights for a show they were doing.

They were entertaining the RAF in northern Germany and had been told they would find what they needed at a nearby camp which had recently been liberated.

The camp was called Bergen-Belsen. None of them knew what evil had happened there.

"We didn't know what to expect," recalled Denis Norden half a century later. "We had not heard a word about it."

Norden and his two friends, Ron Rich and Eric Sykes, dumped the lights. They went straight back to their own camp and picked up whatever spare food they could find.
