New evidence in Bailey trial

Fresh evidence in Ian Bailey's fight against extradition to France for questioning over the murder of film-maker Sophie Toscan du Plantier was due to be heard at Ireland's highest court today.

The one-time suspect won a legal challenge to have recently released State documents admitted as part of his appeal.

The former journalist from England, living in Schull, west Cork, is wanted in Paris for questioning over the 1996 murder.

Mr Bailey denies any involvement with the murder.



Mum's there for me -- Peaches

Peaches Geldof said she feels Paula Yates is watching over her after she revealed her baby is due on her late mother's birthday.

The 22-year-old said her father, Bob Geldof, was "overwhelmed" when she told him on Boxing Day that she was expecting a baby boy with her fiance Thomas Cohen.

Peaches said she was amazed when she was told her son was due on April 24 -- the same day her mother, who died of a drugs overdose in 2000, was born.



Guidelines for children's diet

New guidelines on suitable food and drink for young children were due to be launched today.

Childcare providers will for the first time have a nationally recognised source of information about menus, portion sizes, how to deal with fussy eaters and advice on involving children in food and cooking activities.

According to the School Food Trust charity, which compiled the voluntary guidelines, some young children are given food which is more appropriate for older children and adults.
