A British teenager who suffered from a phobia of going to the toilet died from a heart attack. She had held her bowels for about eight weeks prior. An inquest is trying to determine the circumstances of the teen's death.
In 2007 a young woman killed herself in an Ontario prison. Her death is now the subject of a coroner's inquest scheduled to begin in Toronto on Monday. Ashley Smith's death may help to prevent others who suffer from mental illness in the prison system.
In the Strand today, the Old Bailey has heard Mr al Fayed speak in the dock as he claims that Prince Philip and Tony Blair conspired to the crash which killed Dodi and Diana as well as their driver, Henri Paul.
