In Look East tonight: He is a liar and an actor.

:00:00.:00:00.

Prosecutors tell a jury to convict Ian Stewart of killing Royston

:00:00.:00:07.

Getting back in the saddle - the Newmarket jockey paralysed

:00:08.:00:12.

in an horrific fall says he is determined to ride again.

:00:13.:00:20.

And will the mild weather last until the weekend?

:00:21.:00:23.

A liar and an actor - who preyed on his wealthy fiancee

:00:24.:00:40.

That is how prosecutors described Ian Stewart today.

:00:41.:00:44.

He is accused of killing the children's author Helen Bailey

:00:45.:00:51.

and hiding her body in a cess pit under the home they

:00:52.:00:54.

After nearly six weeks of evidence, the trial is coming to an end,

:00:55.:00:58.

The prosecution told the jury the killing of Helen Bailey,

:00:59.:01:01.

the planning that went into it, and the disposal of her body

:01:02.:01:04.

They claim Ian Stewart, who met her online, have been

:01:05.:01:07.

preying on the Hertfordshire author to win his way into her favour

:01:08.:01:10.

Helen Bailey's body was found in a cesspit under her home

:01:11.:01:14.

in Royston three months after she vanished in April.

:01:15.:01:16.

Ian Stewart told police she left a note saying she needed time

:01:17.:01:19.

and space and have gone to the Broadstairs.

:01:20.:01:26.

He then changed his story, saying his partner had been

:01:27.:01:28.

The prosecution called the story absurd.

:01:29.:01:41.

Why would they choose to bring the uninjured,

:01:42.:01:43.

drug body of Helen Bailey to that spot?

:01:44.:01:46.

The Crown say that the defendant's evident on its own, any rational

:01:47.:01:52.

consideration of it say that he's guilty.

:01:53.:01:55.

The defendant's counsel asked what cause a mild mannered loving

:01:56.:02:00.

The defendant's counsel asked what caused a mild mannered loving

:02:01.:02:02.

family man to suddenly decide to kill Helen Bailey.

:02:03.:02:04.

Responding to the prosecution case that Ian Stewart

:02:05.:02:16.

killed his fiancee for her fortune, he replied he was in poor,

:02:17.:02:19.

killed his fiancee for her fortune, he replied he was not poor,

:02:20.:02:22.

he wasn't short of funds, he didn't need any more money.

:02:23.:02:29.

The court was told Helen and Ian Stewart were in love

:02:30.:02:31.

Closing speeches will continue tomorrow.

:02:32.:02:45.

Police say that five people have now been arrested on suspicion

:02:46.:02:48.

of the murder a 17-year-old boy in Northampton on Tuesday.

:02:49.:02:50.

Liam Hunt was stabbed in St George's Street.

:02:51.:02:52.

All those arrested are teenagers aged between 16 and 19.

:02:53.:03:04.

Next, the Newmarket jockey who was left paralysed

:03:05.:03:06.

from the waist down after a fall says he is determined

:03:07.:03:08.

Freddy Tylicki came off in a four-horse pile up

:03:09.:03:12.

In his first television interview, Freddy has been speaking

:03:13.:03:16.

You know that as the individual rider, but you don't think about it.

:03:17.:03:34.

You are going to get falls, that is for sure.

:03:35.:03:36.

And when you do fall, it is how bad it is afterwards.

:03:37.:03:39.

I got away with it a few times and unfortunately,

:03:40.:03:41.

Freddy had been an emerging force in the saddle.

:03:42.:03:52.

A former champion apprentice - last year, his best season yet.

:03:53.:03:54.

At 30 years old, he was tipped for the top before tragedy struck.

:03:55.:03:58.

Falling in a four-horse pile-up in Kempton in October.

:03:59.:04:00.

Meaning he has no movement in the lower half of his body.

:04:01.:04:05.

Being here, when you get to see people that have had all sorts

:04:06.:04:08.

of accidents and all sorts of injuries and to be honest,

:04:09.:04:11.

a couple of lads watched the race again and they said to me that

:04:12.:04:14.

I was very lucky to actually be here because it was

:04:15.:04:17.

After weeks in intensive care, Freddy's rehabilitation

:04:18.:04:36.

Circulation and stretch on this one...

:04:37.:04:38.

Experts at the London spinal cord unit keep him busy.

:04:39.:04:40.

Specialist equipment keeps his muscles moving.

:04:41.:04:42.

I love my job and I live for the industry, I lived for my job.

:04:43.:04:47.

And I started riding a racehorse when I was 11 or 12 years of age

:04:48.:04:51.

Once you start with it, you just can't stop.

:04:52.:04:55.

Do you think there is a chance you could ride again?

:04:56.:04:58.

I am going to have a riding lesson next Wednesday...

:04:59.:05:03.

So you really are getting straight back on the horse?

:05:04.:05:06.

Obviously, it's not going to be a racehorse,

:05:07.:05:09.

But, look, as I said, life goes on and you have got

:05:10.:05:13.

to make the most of it and roll on next Wednesday.

:05:14.:05:18.

Now, how sport can keep your mind healthy as well as your body?

:05:19.:05:22.

For the last few months, patients at a mental health unit

:05:23.:05:24.

in Milton Keynes have been playing football.

:05:25.:05:26.

And organisers say it is working, with fewer re-admissions.

:05:27.:05:28.

Strangers who are suffering in silence, now a team

:05:29.:05:37.

53-year-old Robin has been suffering for too long.

:05:38.:05:44.

Battling depression for over 40 years.

:05:45.:05:47.

Not wanting to get out of bed, overeating, just being very, very...

:05:48.:05:53.

Basically wanting to jump off Beachy Head.

:05:54.:06:02.

Around 11,000 people suffer with some sort of mental health

:06:03.:06:05.

illness here in Milton Keynes and yet it is widely accepted

:06:06.:06:07.

there is a lack of provision for those who suffer.

:06:08.:06:10.

This three-year programme, which started in September,

:06:11.:06:16.

costs just ?50,000 and is having a profound impact.

:06:17.:06:20.

Taking in-patients from the ward to the pitch.

:06:21.:06:25.

I have noticed that there is a massive gap for

:06:26.:06:28.

So I took it upon myself to really bring these people along to try

:06:29.:06:34.

something in the community because there is a lot of help

:06:35.:06:37.

whilst they are in crisis and while they are in hospital

:06:38.:06:39.

and they are protected there, but as soon as they have got to try

:06:40.:06:42.

and do things by themselves, they don't really know where to go.

:06:43.:06:46.

So it is creating something for them.

:06:47.:06:47.

When our players play football, they play for MK Dons in the kit

:06:48.:06:50.

and colours as you have seen today and they go out of represent us Mat

:06:51.:06:56.

and colours as you have seen today and they go out of represent us

:06:57.:07:01.

If I was just a regular grass-roots player, if I had my time again,

:07:02.:07:07.

I would love to put that kit on and play for the Dons.

:07:08.:07:10.

But we can make that happen for these guys.

:07:11.:07:14.

Robin, have you ever thought what life would be

:07:15.:07:16.

like if you didn't have football as an outlet?

:07:17.:07:18.

It would not be a good place to be at all, really,

:07:19.:07:22.

It's a whole team sport, the whole team environment

:07:23.:07:26.

and also as I said before, it improves your health

:07:27.:07:28.

A complicated illness but a simple game.

:07:29.:07:31.

No pills, no counselling, just a ball, some mates

:07:32.:07:36.

Well, earlier I asked Marguerite Reegan from

:07:37.:07:43.

the Mental Health Foundation why exercise helps our mood.

:07:44.:07:46.

It has been proven to reduce stress and anxiety.

:07:47.:07:48.

It reduces the number of days people have to take off work sick.

:07:49.:07:57.

And it has also been proven to be a great treatment method either

:07:58.:08:01.

alongside pharmaceutical methods or as a replacement and it doesn't

:08:02.:08:04.

have any of the negative side effects, such as weight gain.

:08:05.:08:12.

So it is really useful for both prevention and promotion of mental

:08:13.:08:15.

health, but also for treatment of mental health problems.

:08:16.:08:22.

Does it matter what kind of sport you're doing?

:08:23.:08:24.

A team sport like football or individual things like yoga

:08:25.:08:27.

No, all physical activity is beneficial, if it's

:08:28.:08:34.

in groups and a team sport, it has the added benefit of helping

:08:35.:08:37.

with loneliness for the general population and social isolation

:08:38.:08:40.

for people dealing with mental health problems, which is often

:08:41.:08:42.

In Milton Keynes, they've invested quite heavily in this.

:08:43.:08:45.

In partnership with the football club.

:08:46.:08:47.

Why should they make the effort to invest in this kind of thing?

:08:48.:08:53.

It is effective as a treatment and it is effective as prevention.

:08:54.:08:56.

It's cost-effective, it's very accessible.

:08:57.:08:57.

Sport has the end bonus of their is no stigma

:08:58.:09:02.

attached to taking part, whether you're doing it for mental

:09:03.:09:09.

It also is a great way to target people who won't necessarily talk

:09:10.:09:17.

Men, for instance, are a key demographic that it's very

:09:18.:09:21.

It's a great way to move things out of just the health system and get

:09:22.:09:25.

communities involved and remove some of the stigma and continue some

:09:26.:09:28.

Cambridge University students gathered in the city centre tonight,

:09:29.:09:31.

handing out warm food and drinks to rough sleepers.

:09:32.:09:33.

It is in response to a video posted online, reportedly showing a student

:09:34.:09:36.

burning a ?20 note in front of a homeless man.

:09:37.:09:39.

The incident attracted widespread condemnation,

:09:40.:09:40.

but charities say it has raised awareness of the problem.

:09:41.:09:42.

One of the positive actions that have been shown are several

:09:43.:09:45.

Just Giving pages have been set up with Jimmy's as a benefactor.

:09:46.:09:48.

We are proud to be associated with this and proud

:09:49.:09:50.

At the moment, the pages have raised ?10,000.

:09:51.:09:54.

Obviously that is something Jimmy's needs to look at,

:09:55.:09:56.

as to how best help people on the street.

:09:57.:09:58.

And that's the late news from Look East.

:09:59.:10:02.

I'll leave you with the weather with Alex.

:10:03.:10:04.

The earlier rain has just about given way.

:10:05.:10:13.

There are a few spots over Southern counties,

:10:14.:10:15.

but the rest of the night looks like it should stay dry with quite

:10:16.:10:18.

Once more, temperatures not dropping particularly low.

:10:19.:10:21.

Down to around 7 degrees for most of us.

:10:22.:10:23.

We start the day with quite a bit of cloud around.

:10:24.:10:32.

More cloud around generally tomorrow compared to today,

:10:33.:10:39.

but they should be some bright or sunny spells as we head

:10:40.:10:42.

Temperatures comfortably into double figures.

:10:43.:10:44.

The weather will turn mild into the weekend.

:10:45.:10:50.

It could be rather cloudy at times, but there should be some

:10:51.:10:53.

Just a chance of the odd spot of rain for Friday night

:10:54.:10:57.

of 11. Not too bad for the forthcoming weekend. Here is Nick

:10:58.:11:04.

Miller with a resume of the National weather picture.

:11:05.:11:09.

Hello, rain for some of us today although it won't make much of a

:11:10.:11:13.

dent in the dry winter so far across much of the UK. A few threatening

:11:14.:11:18.

clouds in Cumbria but more than a threat of rain across the pond for

:11:19.:11:21.

Friday. The wettest weather system of the season is over heading into

:11:22.:11:25.

California, and there have been a few, with copious amounts of rain

:11:26.:11:30.

and lots of mountain snow. Record-breaking wet winter so far in

:11:31.:11:35.

parts of California. In Los Angeles this might

:11:36.:11:36.
