Victim reveals how she took this picture during late-night encounter before grunting man

Abi Conroy (left), 23, said the stranger charged at her in a 'full black rubbery' outfit, 'grunting and breathing heavily', while she was taking a late-night walk in a Somerset village. Helped by passers-by, she chased him off and was able to take a picture (centre) before he vanished through a hedge. Police yesterday arrested a second suspect in his 30s over the incident following the arrest on Monday of a man in his 20s. The man in his 20s was later bailed and described by locals as from a very religious family. Abi, who is a barber, said she was struggling to come to terms with last Thursday's confrontation because she already suffered from anxiety. 'It was a massive shock, I didn't know if I was dreaming,' she said. 'I've already suffered from severe anxiety that's why I go for my little walks - to try and clear my head.' Abi and her wife Pip (right, together), who have been married a year, said that while they were grateful the police were doing their job, it would be difficult to relax until they knew the right person had been caught.

Ronnie Le Drew (left, with Zippy) is releasing a tell-all memoir called Zippy and Me, that is set to shatter the innocence of the children's programme, often described as Britain's answer to Sesame Street.

Father-of-four Dr David Mackereth (left) never imagined he would find himself branded a 'bigot' by Piers Morgan (right) on live breakfast TV, and fearing that he would never work as a doctor again.

Dr Mackereth believes his ongoing legal case against the Government could have significant legal implications. 'This case is all about whether I am legally clear to say - on the grounds of my religious conscience - "No, I can't call you 'she' or 'he', not because I want to hurt you or don't accept you, but because my Christian convictions simply won't allow me to do that," 'he said.

ALISON BOSHOFF: That's rich, Kate Winslet

Stargazers around the world gather to see the red 'half-blood Moon'

Last night's 'half-blood Moon' offered spectacular views in European skies, including above Istanbul (top picture, above the Hagia Sophia), Germany (bottom left, in Speyer) and Britain (bottom right, in West Yorkshire), and will also take place over much of Asia and Africa and parts of South America and Australia.

As the Moon moves into Earth's shadow during a partial eclipse, it is illuminated by a small amount of sunlight that passes through our atmosphere - producing the unusual red colour. The eclipse is particularly well-timed as the Moon is on the public mind anyway, half a century exactly since Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin began their historic journey to the lunar surface.
