According to a report by Yahoo! Way of lifethe producers took to Instagram to pick the specific role, even reaching out to several women whose partners only recently passed away.

Speaking to the publication on Tuesday, a friend of a widow who was approached for the show lambasted the producers for their eyebrow-raising casting tactics.

“They are looking for a widow and literally sending a message to every woman she knows who is going through this trauma and some are very recent,” the woman said.

He goes on to warn that the show is “not a competition and there are no cash prizes to be won”.

“Instead, you could walk away with the most precious prize of all…true love,” Nine’s post teases.

Additionally, potential stars are warned that they will have to give up four months of their lives for the show. He also insists that future couples must be “real about finding love”.

At least 20 ‘students’ died in South African nightclub as they ‘celebrated end of exams’: Police investigate deaths in southern township as victims were ‘poisoned’

  • At least 20 people have been found dead in a nightclub in South Africa
  • Police rushed to Enyobeni Tavern in Scenery Park early Sunday morning
  • Speculation that the victims were ‘poisoned’ or ‘killed in a stampede’

At least 20 people have been found dead in a nightclub in South Africa amid claims they were poisoned.

South African authorities said police rushed to the Enyobeni Tavern in Scenery Park, a township in the southern city of East London, in the early hours of Sunday after receiving information from the public.

Brigadier Tembinkosi Kinana said those killed at the club were all between the ages of 18 and 20.

Eastern Cape provincial community and security department official Unathi Binqose ruled out a stampede as the cause of death. He said he understood the customers to be students “celebrating the pens, a party held after (high school) exams.”

However, regional newspaper DispatchLive reported that those who died had been exposed to some kind of poison.

Unverified footage shared on social media showed bodies with no visible signs of injury, strewn across the club floor.

Local television showed police trying to calm a crowd of people gathered outside the club in the town, located on the Indian Ocean coast, nearly 620 miles south of Johannesburg.

“We don’t want to speculate at this stage. Our investigation is continuing.

The Southbury Kid (Festival Theatre, Chichester)

Verdict: Facetious but touching

Evaluation:

Who wouldn’t want to see The Crown’s Alex Jennings play a small-town vicar?

With his kind, patrician face, he looks heaven-sent for the role of Reverend David Highland.

Yet in Stephen Beresford’s fun and ultimately sad new play, we’re also meant to imagine his Devonshire pastor as a troubled drinker and sexual womanizer.

Her even bigger problem, however, is the mother of a dead child who wants Disney balloons at her daughter’s funeral. She yearns to celebrate her daughter’s short life; he feels that death must be looked directly in the eye.

Either way, I couldn’t believe such a benign old stick would choose to take Custer’s last fight over an issue like this. Inevitably, his tough line turns the community against him – but that also struck me as too far removed from his character to be believable.

Who wouldn't want to see The Crown's Alex Jennings play a small-town vicar?  With his kind, patrician face, he looks heaven-sent for the role of Reverend David Highland

Who wouldn’t want to see The Crown’s Alex Jennings play a small-town vicar? With his kind, patrician face, he looks heaven-sent for the role of Reverend David Highland

Beresford has been highly regarded since directing his Chekhovian drama The Last Of The Haussmans at the National Theater in 2012.

Had he revealed a bigger personal dilemma behind Highland’s decision, or offered a deeper examination of the unfortunate vicar’s conscience, it might have worked.

Instead, his Alan Bennettish dialogue lets David off the hook, with tons of irony and very English witticisms that defuse the tension (Bennett, on the other hand, has always been wary of material so overtly emotional).

Jennings associates spiritual unease with flashes of angst, though too often he reaches for a cheap scotch or a tongue-in-cheek remark. In particular, he deplores his failure to respect the first rule of ecclesiastical law: “Don’t annoy the herd”.

Phoebe Nicholls has the patience of a saint as a wife, somehow holding the house together; while Jo Herbert, as his sexually frustrated teacher daughter, dutifully takes over her parochial responsibilities.

It’s up to David’s adopted daughter (Racheal Ofori) – a militant black atheist – to be more facetious, though sometimes (like her gag about how she has the dress sense of a Lithuanian prostitute) she rings like an author’s voice.

Jack Greenlees, as a gay priest and pin-up, ticks the remaining boxes of church and sexual politics. The locals are primarily portrayed by Josh Finan, as the dead child’s jolly thick brother.

Amusingly, he has a habit of asking deep, existential questions; yet he is also given to wicked troubles, for which he is never held accountable.

Thanks to one of his second-half pranks, Beresford’s plot moves away from what should be the titular child’s powerful story. Indeed, Sarah Twomey as the mother of this child, who should be the moral and emotional conscience of the play, is reduced to an awkwardly poignant side-show.

Despite these flaws, there’s a lot to like about this vision of a rural community, with its annual festival blessing the city’s river for safety and fruitfulness (echoes of Jez Butterworth’s Jerusalem).

Sir Nicholas Hytner’s airy production skims over the underlying pain. And Mark Thompson’s ensemble of a flagstone presbytery kitchen with a Norman church towering beyond is a great comfort to the eyes.

But with fewer gags and a less facetious tone, it could have been a better piece: capturing the very real pain of a Church and a country that – as Beresford spotted – is in the throes of extremely uncomfortable change. .

From July 1, after touring Chichester, The Southbury Child will move to the Bridge Theater in London SE1.

An animated history lesson celebrating girl power

Fantastically tall women who changed the world (Theatre Royal, East Stratford)

Evaluation:

Verdict: Six for six years

This is a celebration of girl power over the centuries – in neon color. It’s a Six for six-year-olds, a history lesson and a call to arms: don’t be afraid to do what’s right, don’t be fragile like a flower but fragile like a bomb.

Talented playwright/lyricist Chris Bush places a young girl at the center of Kate Pankhurst’s picture book. Jade is left behind on a school trip, alone in a museum that hosts heroines of air, land and sea. to develop her senses and sensitivity by Jane Austen, and thrown into the deep end by Olympic swimmer Gertrude Ederle.

Emmeline Pankhurst — a distant relative of the author — reminds him that with half as many women as men in Parliament, the job is not done.

I’m still singing thanks to Miranda Cooper who gives the show the poptastic sound of her hits for the Sugababes and Girls Aloud.

But all is not optimistic. In a particularly poignant moment, Rosa Parks hugs Jade and Anne Frank, telling them that all she did was refuse to give up her seat on a bus to a white man. Yet it changed the world.

A Doll’s House, Part 2 (Donmar Warehouse, London)

Evaluation:

Verdict: unbearable

It’s Not Who I Am (Royal Court Theatre, London)

Evaluation:

Verdict: hoax

A Doll’s House, Part 2 is one of the most condescending theatrical homilies I have ever had the misfortune to endure. American writer Lucas Hnath has deigned to revisit Henrik Ibsen’s 19th century Norwegian melodrama about a woman who abandons her husband and children, and treat it as an opportunity to pontificate on the institution of marriage.

It begins by asking Ibsen’s revered feminist heroine, Nora (Noma Dumezweni), to return to her husband Torvald (Brian F. O’Byrne) to demand that he sign the divorce he promised 15 years ago. earlier.

But her ultimatum isn’t delivered until she first teaches her bewildered governess (June Watson) how and why marriage destroys women’s lives.

She then turns against her still traumatized husband and explains to him, once again, why he is a hopeless human being and why their marriage was rotten to the core.

Any attempt to cut off his protests is met with a scowl of disbelief. Even his adult daughter (Patricia Allison) is considered a not-yet-fully-formed “mini-me.”

For millennia, the theater has familiarized heroes and heroines with their flaws. Not here. This 95-minute portion of educational self-fortification is at least three times longer, thanks to Nora de Dumezweni.

Her ultimatum isn't delivered until she first lectures her baffled governess (June Watson) on how and why marriage destroys women's lives.

Her ultimatum isn’t delivered until she first lectures her baffled governess (June Watson) on how and why marriage destroys women’s lives.

She is so supremely important that even the prospect of prison or misery does not offend her. She is immune to theatrical pursuits.

Pompously postponing her Byzantine love life, her condescending coup de grace is to reject the divorce she has always demanded on the grounds that she now considers it… condescending!

The condescension, however, is structural in James Macdonald’s production, from the moment the roof covering the stage is solemnly lifted to reveal a set of… a few chairs on a crisp orange floor.

The production also combines Hnath’s tuneless modern profanity with starchy period costumes, so it can be safe to speak of the dark past in the language of four-letter enlightenment.

Personally, I found no interest in any of the potential story outcomes, except for one: going home.

Meanwhile, another upper-class theatrical salon, the Royal Court, came very close to accomplishing the difficult task of disappearing on its own foundations.

The occasion is a hoax of a new play by Lucy Kirkwood, which creates a thrill of danger by impersonating a ‘Dave Davison’ play on online identity theft.

Kirkwood seems to think it would be hilarious to present his fictional docu-drama about a young couple falling into a vacuum of isolation and deep paranoia as a secret investigation.

The piece traces the young couple’s journey from meeting, in a restaurant in 2011, to moving in together and having a baby, before his conspiracy theory posts on YouTube during lockdown led them both to be …murdered.

The whole setup is completely bogus and the most real thing in the series is a scene during lockdown in which the couple wash their groceries.

Jake Davies as a lying young handyman is inscrutably nonchalant, but the show’s greatest asset is the ever-watchable Siena Kelly as a young geriatric nurse. She is a bubbly young actress who, through childbirth, goes from carefree flirty to radicalized neurosis.

Priyanga Burford gets the hollow task of playing the author-narrator who claims this is an important and dangerous investigation.

Unfortunately, the world is full of truly important and dangerous investigations that Kirkwood would have done better to pursue.

After having trapped us in the theater, the director Lucy Morrison takes the wise precaution of not sparing any interval in the two-hour deposition, to thwart the flight of the public.

A hero group of up to 20 New Yorkers LIFT up a yellow taxi of two women after the driver jumped the curb and hit them: at least six people are injured, three of them in critical condition

  • Six people were injured when a taxi jumped a sidewalk in Manhattan on Monday
  • It happened just before 1 p.m. on Broadway near 29th Street
  • The taxi collided with a cyclist and jumped the curb, pinning two women
  • Between 15 and 20 people helped lift the women’s taxi
  • All six people were taken to hospital for treatment.
  • Three of the victims were listed in critical condition
  • The taxi driver, who remained at the scene, was also injured in the accident

A group of New Yorkers heroically lifted a cab of two women who had been pinned down by a cab that had just collided with a cyclist, jumped the curb and rammed into several pedestrians in Manhattan on Monday.

Six people were injured in the incident and taken to hospital. Three of the victims are in critical condition.

Police said the taxi driver was turning left around 1 p.m. when the vehicle collided with a cyclist at the intersection of Broadway and West 29th Street in the Flatiron District.

The taxi jumped off the curb and crashed into the sidewalk, hitting several pedestrians. Two women were trapped under the vehicle, police said.

Between 15 and 20 people attempted to lift the victims’ cab in what NYPD Deputy Police Chief John Chell called a “remarkable scene”.

At least four people were injured, three seriously, when a taxi jumped a curb and hit several pedestrians on a sidewalk in Manhattan on Monday

Six of the victims were taken to hospital, three of them in critical condition. The taxi driver, who remained at the scene, is among the injured victims.

Video and photos from the scene in front of Black Seed Bagel and Juice Generation show the taxi on the sidewalk and several of the damaged plant barriers. A mutilated bicycle was left on the cycle path.

The Emergency Management Department advised people to expect traffic delays, road closures and emergency personnel in the Broadway and West 29th Street area. Drivers must find an alternate route.

A witness to the accident told the New York Post that the taxi driver first hit a cyclist, before crashing into the women who were eating at the Black Seed Bagel.

“Everyone rushed over and lifted the taxi from two women stuck underneath. A woman’s legs have disappeared. They were mutilated. One guy took his belt off and tied it around his leg to stop the bleeding,” the witness told the publication.

A second witness told the Post that one of the women had lost a leg below the knee and the second had the majority of one of her thighs missing.

Disturbing doorbell camera footage captured the moment three female friends were brutally beaten in an unprovoked attack by a man, cops say, a woman-hating ex-con who then targeted three other victims at the over the next 24 hours.

The clip was shot in Philadelphia on Wednesday night and shows a man cops believe to be Malcolm White, 36, knocking a woman to the ground while walking past them, then attacking one of the victim’s first female friends as she rushed to help.

The first victim shouted “F**k you” at her attacker as she lay injured on the ground.

A third woman was seen grabbing a trash can and running down the road in an effort to protect herself from being attacked by a man who cops said neither she nor her friends had met before.

Cops say White fled the scene afterward.

Police are investigating whether White was the man filmed attacking three women on Wednesday night, punching all three in the face in a horrific assault

Despite their efforts, the three women were brutally beaten before the man fled

He is suspected of assaulting another woman 20 minutes later that evening, as well as carrying out two separate assaults on female victims the following day, one of which included a sexual assault.

There is no suggestion that any of the victims knew the attacking cops thought he was white, and all four attacks in Philadelphia were said to have been completely random.

The second attack which took place on Wednesday evening – which occurred 20 minutes after the three women were filmed being beaten – saw a woman in her 30s knocked unconscious as she sat on the porch of his house.

The first attack which took place on Thursday saw an office worker in her 20s followed in the hallway of the building where she works, before being beaten and sexually assaulted.

White reportedly started stalking her after she got off a bus and stole her phone.

Later Thursday, White is accused of hijacking a woman by snatching her from her car by her hair.

She called 911 and cops then arrested White in a nearby wooded area. They would have recovered the phone stolen from the woman attacked and assaulted in the hallway of her office during this arrest.

Philadelphia Chief Inspector Frank Vanore told reporters Thursday that the victims of Wednesday’s attack included a 29-year-old man and two 27-year-olds.

Law enforcement sources told Fox that White was released from prison in January and has previously assaulted female prison guards in New York.

White had been released from Clinton County Jail after serving a 12-year sentence for drug trafficking and assault.

In 2010, he was being held in jail without bond for allegedly trafficking heroin and crack cocaine between New York City and North Country, Pennsylvania, the Press Republican reported.

In prison, White was accused of attacking a prison guard, biting her as she carried him out of his cell. He was later charged with assaulting four other prison officers.

Despite the violent assaults, White was only given a 12-year sentence as part of a plea deal.

Philadelphia Chief Inspector Frank Vanore said police suspected White of attacking another woman after Wednesday's assault.  They believe he then beat and sexually assaulted another woman a few hours later, then attacked another woman and stole her car.

Philadelphia DA Larry Krasner.

The spate of attacks on women has left the City of Brotherly Love on edge as it comes as crime continues to rise as District Attorney Larry Krasner faces calls to resign over his “soft on crime” policy.

As of June 12, the city had recorded 43 homicides, an increase of 30% from the previous week, and 324 serious assaults with a firearm, an increase of 13.3%.

Overall crime in Philadelphia is currently up more than 7% from the same time last year.

And after the city faced a mass shooting last week that left three dead and 11 injured, Pennsylvania House Republicans have launched the impeachment process for Krasner.

“Across the country, people are resisting the unchecked, unchecked violence and lawlessness that is authorized because of radical politicians in district attorneys’ offices, like Larry Krasner,” state Rep. Torren Ecker said at About the DA supported by George Soros.

“Last week, businesses in the city said they were considering relocating due to spikes in crime. Philadelphia is Pennsylvania’s main economic engine, a tourist attraction, and the birthplace of our freedoms.

“If unchecked crime prevents businesses and tourists from visiting and settling in Philadelphia, it impacts Pennsylvania as a whole.”

Krasner will now likely face a recall campaign, after progressive San Francisco DA Chesa Boudin was ousted from office amid furor over spiraling crimes affecting residents’ quality of life.

Woke LA DA George Gascon is also set to face his own recall election over similar issues in the crime-ridden City of Angels.

‘Aggressive and threatening’ teenagers force suburban McDonald’s to close its restaurant every afternoon as staff struggle to control rowdy high school kids

  • A McDonald’s in Melbourne has closed its food services because of anti-social teenagers
  • The Point Cook fast food chain posted a sign on its door informing customers
  • Young people are accused of abusing staff, vaping indoors and vandalizing property

High school students vaping and causing trouble in the dining room of a McDonald’s restaurant forced the franchise to close its food section for an entire week as staff struggled to control rowdy teenagers.

McDonald’s in Point Cook, south-west Melbourne, posted a sign at the entrance last week explaining that food services would not be available between 3pm and 5.30pm, due to anti-social behavior by young people.

The memo says the workers were victims of abusive behavior by high school students, who also destroyed property and terrorized customers.

“Due to the actions of some school children from surrounding secondary schools who vape in our restaurant, vandalize our property and display aggressive and threatening behavior towards our staff, we had to close our dining hall from the afternoon and we will only negotiate through the drive-thru,’ the note reads.

‘Sorry for the inconvenience.’

The restaurant dropped the ban this weekend, but plans to hire security guards to be prepared for any future issues.

The memo claimed that the workers had been subjected to abusive behavior by high school students, who had also destroyed property.

Locals who were there when the drama unfolded last Sunday flooded social media with support for McDonald’s, saying some young people in the area were getting “out of control”.

“They weren’t in uniform but they were just sitting there vaping, running around the restaurant, making out, etc,” one person said.

‘It’s not good for business. But as young as they are, in 7th or 8th grade, they can’t be touched and they knew it. The restaurant manager can’t even tell them to move.

“This behavior is not good for the new generations!”

A McDonald’s spokeswoman confirmed the dining room was closed between Monday and Friday last week in an effort to ‘restrict loitering and anti-social behavior in our restaurant’.

“These measures have been taken to protect the safety of our customers and our crew, which is our top priority. We reported this behavior to the police,” the spokeswoman said.

LaLiga plans to take legal action against Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain over ‘continuously violate current financial fair play regulations.’

La Liga president Javier Tebas has frequently spoken out against City and PSG spending and the Spanish league is now ready to take its grievances to European Union courts.

Much of his anger returned to the fore after Manchester City agreed a £51million deal for Erling Haaland and PSG quit Kylian Mbappe on a three-year deal worth £650,000. pounds per week.

Following Mbappe’s lucrative new contract, Tebas and LaLiga filed a complaint against PSG with UEFA this week, reports Markjoining the league’s complaint against Man City from April.

Earlier this month, Tebas accused PSG of ‘destroying the ecosystem of European football’ after Kylian Mbappe, who was expected to sign for Real Madrid for free, agreed to a jaw-dropping £650,000-a-week deal over three years to stay in Paris.

“They’re going to have to cheat,” Tebas said at an event on Monday, as quoted by Marca. “I don’t know whether to pay outside the French community or to fatten the sponsorships a lot.”

“We are not going to allow a European team to destroy the ecosystem of European football,” he added, when Mbappe’s new contract was revealed.

“It’s not a problem of French football but of European football. We want Ligue 1 to be a sustainable competition. It’s not good for the industry. Our complaint regarding the PSG affair has already been drafted and we will file it with UEFA in the coming days.

“I believe that is what we have to do to defend European football and Spanish football and we will do it.”

Tebas’ public criticism of PSG and Man City has drawn scathing rebukes, including one from the French league chief.

Ligue 1 president Vincent Labrune recently reminded Tebas that Real Madrid and Barcelona ‘received illegal state aid’ and were themselves spending huge sums on transfer fees and wages.

Labrune said: “Firstly, when it comes to financial stability and sustainability, two of your clubs – Real Madrid and Barcelona – have broken a host of records over the last decade.

“In terms of transfer fees, these two clubs have broken the world record six times. In terms of player salaries, Real Madrid currently have two of the highest paid players in world football sitting on their bench [Gareth Bale and Eden Hazard].

“In terms of debt, Barcelona are said to have a debt level of €1.5 billion, and this despite the finding of the European Court of Justice that Real Madrid and Barcelona benefited from illegal state aid.

“Over the past 10 years, La Liga has spent 32% more on players than Ligue 1; and a lot more about foreign players outside your own league compared to Ligue 1.’

Man City have faced an investigation from the Premier League in 2019 on academy player recruitment and third-party ownership.

It came after UEFA challenged City over claims they had overly inflated sponsorship deals.

City were initially banned from the Champions League for two years, but it was later overturned by the Court of Arbitration for Sport, becoming instead fined closer to £25m for failing to cooperate with the club. ‘.

Haaland’s arrival this summer came at Tebas and was central to his record against City.

He recently said: “From what I know, Haaland’s transfer, that is, the way it was to be done, would have been impossible for a club that has the transparency of Real Madrid.”

“If he went to City, we have to see how that deal was done, not in terms of money, but in terms of structure.”

‘[Haaland’s agent] Mino Raiola’s successor received 150 million euros, I don’t know if it’s a commission or not. That’s what happens in the market and these weird things are only done by a club like Manchester City, PSG and Chelsea in the past.

He believes other leagues aren’t as strict as they are in La Liga, with Barcelona facing problems registering any new signings unless they can knock big earners off the books.

FULL LA LIGA STATEMENT

La Liga this week lodged a complaint with UEFA against PSG, who will join another against Manchester City in April, for understanding that these clubs continually breach current Financial Fair Play rules.

LaLiga considers that these practices alter the ecosystem and the sustainability of football, harm all European clubs and leagues, and only serve to artificially inflate the market, with money not generated by football itself.

LaLiga understands that the irregular financing of these clubs takes place, either through direct injections of money or through sponsorship and other contracts that do not correspond to market conditions or do not make economic sense.

The complaints against Manchester City before UEFA were filed in April and last week the one corresponding to PSG was presented, although it is not excluded that in the coming days extensions of some of these complaints will be made with bringing in new data.

Helen Hartup and two other women were sound asleep at the Sydney boarding school where they worked as supervisors when a man holding a bloody knife jolted them awake.

“I already killed tonight,” warned Samuel Leonard Boyd, ordering him, Patricia Volcic and Olive Short to strip.

After the teenage girls in the nearby dorm, Boyd asked the women if there were any 16-18 year olds among them so he could “have sex with them.”

All three were ‘absolute heroes’ to stop him, says Ms Hartup’s niece Margaret Lees.

“He knew the route, he knew where the girls were and how to get there.

“There was no way they would let him…and I’m not sure it’s that well known considering everything that happened that night.”

Helen Hartup and two other women bravely took a stand against Samuel Leonard Boyd when he was killed in 1983. (Pictured: Helen at his wedding in 1950)

It’s been almost 40 years since her 57-year-old aunt was murdered, but Margaret can still smell her Innoxa powder aroma every time she walks past a department store counter.

“I have to do a double take,” she said. “I kind of hang around and put a little bit on my hand.”

Nine-year-old Helen was ‘the favorite aunt’ and Margaret fondly remembers visiting her in Morpeth, in the NSW Hunter Valley.

“She wore beautiful clothes. I remember touching her sleeves, they were always very soft, and if I approached her, she would put her arms around me.

“She was always very warm and so kind. She was always laughing and she made the most amazing sponge cake.

“She didn’t deserve what she got.”

Helen’s younger sister Patty got her a job at Glenfield Park Special School in Sydney’s south-west, where she was a registered nurse.

Some of the children were placed there by the court, others were abused by family members and many were taken into care by the state.

Boyd immigrated to Australia from Scotland as a child and soon became known to the police. His mother also worked at Glenfield School in the 1970s where Boyd visited and met Helen frequently.

His first victim in 1982 was Rhonda Celea. Detectives found the mother-of-two at her home in Busby, naked in the hallway, a child’s dress stained with blood on her face and a gaping laceration in her throat.

Seven months later he was drinking with Gregory Wiles at the Arch Bar Hotel in Liverpool before heading to Scaramouche Disco in the early hours of April 22, 1983.

The couple shared a joint in Glenfield and Boyd says his next memory is questioning himself, covered in blood.

The body of Mr Wiles was later found by the side of a road with serious head injuries caused by Boyd’s claw hammer which had fallen into the nearby school.

That evening, Margaret, heavily pregnant with her second child, was in the kitchen bathing her baby when the radio caught her attention.

“I will never forget it, the news of something terrible happening at Glenfield Park school made my ears prick up. No further details available at this stage.

She immediately called her mother and asked her what was going on.

“She said, ‘I don’t know, I don’t know’ but someone was trying to call her so we hung up.”

A few hours later, Margaret called back and asked if Helen was one of the victims.

“She stopped for a bit and said ‘yes’. All I remember is dropping the phone.

Margaret would later feel shocked when the detective leading the prosecution against Boyd told her, “I have never seen so much blood in all my life and the area he was covering.”

As the attack unfolded, Olive Short woke up with a scream and a man’s voice.

She glanced outside her room and saw Helen, whom Boyd had called by her first name, and Mrs. Volcic cowering.

Knowing the teenage girls were in danger, she made sure the sturdy door to their dorms was locked and hid the keys.

Boyd had each of the women strip naked and herded them onto a bed where he terrorized and brutalized them for hours.

At one point Mrs Short ran for the alarm down the hall, but Boyd arrived first, punched and stabbed her in the neck and threw her back onto the bed.

After being stabbed “numerous times”, she pretended to be dead and Boyd finally turned off the lights and left.

Day staff eventually found her and she was taken to hospital. His eyewitness testimony would play a vital role in the jury’s conviction.

Margaret read in the coroner’s report that one of the reasons Ms Short survived was because she was the last attacked and the knife was already covered in so much blood it coagulated the wound in her neck .

Boyd was found that morning in a Lansvale trailer park, disoriented, disheveled and covered in blood.

He maintained that his last memory was buying a pack of cigarette papers at a Casula petrol station with Mr Wiles.

The next day, Margaret went into labor.

Her brother Malcolm was taken to the morgue to identify Helen behind a glass screen.

“It was absolutely etched in his memory and from that moment he wasn’t the same person.”

Margaret’s mother was advised not to attend the committal hearings, where photographic evidence would be admitted. But she had been in court every day since the first trial, which was aborted and very distressing for everyone.

“Knowing was kind of better than the stories swirling around in your head,” Margaret says.

Since his conviction, Boyd has twice tried to obtain a period without parole. The last time, in 2017, Margaret had then moved from Darwin to Cairns and her contact had not been updated in the register.

Although no member of Helen’s family is in court, she was relieved by both Judge Ken Carruthers in 1994 and Judge Peter Johnson in 2017, who understood the seriousness of what Boyd had done. refusing to determine his sentence.

“It was the only chance I had to stand in court in front of this guy and tell him exactly what I thought of him and exactly what he did to our family,” she says.

“During the time he’s been in prison and had time to think, I wonder if he has any idea how serious the consequences were not just that night, but for the next 40 years.

“He took from us the most compassionate, easy-going, helpful and beautiful person God has ever put on this planet.”

Above all, Margaret wants the children and grandchildren of the three women to know what they have sacrificed, to understand their bravery.

“I don’t think their children would know who their mother was, what they did. These three women gave their lives for these children.

Bingham had been part of the Northern Ireland squad that reached the quarter-finals of the 1958 World Cup, only to lose to France.

It was Bingham’s goal that secured Luton’s 1959 FA Cup semi-final victory over Third Division Norwich to reach Wembley, where they lost to Nottingham Forest.

He won the 1962-63 Premier League title with Everton before moving into management, which included roles when he was also in charge of the Northern Ireland national team as well as a stint with Greece.

“Billy was a tricky winger back when such a position was revered, but there was more to him than playing off the wing. Billy wasn’t afraid to mix it up when needed, had an eye for goal, and had a wonderful tactical and positional brain – attributes that would stand out in his managerial career.

“He was everything a Northern Ireland manager should be: tactically astute, innovative and inspiring.

“He led the team to British Championship glory in 1980 and 1984, qualified for two World Cups in 1982 and 1986 and recorded the first home and away victories against Germany. West during the qualification for the Euros in 1984.
