HENLEY MP John Howell says he fears for his family’s safety after being sent death threats. He has reported to the police messages sent to him after a recent email exchange about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with one of his constituents was posted on the internet. The MP, who lives with his wife Alison and grown-up son, said: “The last thing I want to appear is a drama queen but you have to take seriously a threat when it says, ‘I would like to see you dead’.”

A mother who battled cancer and near-bankruptcy has been chosen to carry the Olympic torch. Susan Sedden, of High Street, Wargrave, says she hopes to inspire others.
