Dear Lily, I am really worried about my youngest son. He’s only 15 but I think him and his friends might be drinking alcohol and smoking wacky cigarettes. He used to be such a darling boy, who took a keen interest in sport, as well as being a popular and active younger member of our church. Now all he does is slouch about in ill-fitting clothing with a permanent scowl on his face. He refuses to attend church with myself and my husband, and has even begun denying the existence of God.

Daniel Ricciardo won the Belgian Grand Prix for Red Bull on Sunday while Mercedes title rivals Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton provided the drama of the day by colliding on the second lap.

The victory, on a surprisingly dry afternoon at a circuit famed for rapid changes in weather conditions, was Ricciardo’s second in succession and third of his first season with...

It has to be the most bizarre epiphany ever. A guy found out he’d been going to the toilet wrong his whole life when he went into a shop to buy a new lavatory. He spoke with a shop assistant who joked about buying one that automatically puts the seat down after use to save his wife complaining. The man laughed and replied: ‘If I didn’t have a wife I could save money and buy one without a seat and I’d never have to hear women complaining about putting it down again.’ To which the assistant gave him a strange look and said ‘but what about when you need to poo?’.
