The Duke of Sussex is understood to have arrived at Her Majesty's Sandringham estate more than two hours before he was due to sit down with the monarch and Princes Charles and William to chart a way through the turmoil engulfing the Family. According to friends, Harry wanted to put his side of the story to the Queen, who came into the crunch summit deeply disappointed with him and Meghan for wanting to step back from their Royal duties. In an historic statement released tonight, her sincere regret was made clear, saying she 'would have preferred them to remain full-time working members'.

But, after her one-to-one with Harry followed by two hours of 'calm' discussions with him, Charles and William, Her Majesty agreed to a 'transition period' where the Duke and Duchess would wind down their Royal engagements as they spend more time in Canada. After Princes Charles, William and Harry left the Norfolk estate in three separate cars this evening, the Daily Mail's editor-at-large Richard Kay revealed Meghan was barred from dialling in on the meeting from Vancouver.

Schoolboy Monty Lord, aged 14, of St Joseph's High in Bolton, has achieved his ambition to be in the record books by identifying 129 books consecutively just from their opening sentence.

He won a place in Guinness World Records by beating the previous record, a mere 30, held by a man in India. Monty became fascinated by the powers of memory while doing a distance learning course in psychology. Monty studied the openings of 200 works using visualisation techniques.

He then sat in a classroom at his school, and was filmed as Mr Lord read out 130 opening lines. He would have identified all 130 correctly had his 44-year-old father not made a mistake at the start, saying the title instead of the opening line of the first book.

Sources close to the sale reportedly believe the edifice has various potential commercial uses, including as a residential nursing home - and they also reckon it could be converted into a luxury hotel. If so, it will not be the first time holidaymakers have checked into a former penal institution. I stayed in one on an island in Stockholm, which used the Spartan prison ambience as a gimmicky attraction, with heavy cell doors and barred windows.

But Broadmoor is a different proposition altogether. Although it has become one of Europe's most progressive high-security psychiatric facilities, its reputation is still that of a house of horrors, home to numerous infamous and deranged criminals - serial killers, arsonists, poisoners, rapists and torturers among them - over the decades. It is regarded as a terrifying Bedlam whose labyrinthine corridors echo to the primal shrieks of insane men.

After smashing through the patio door he broke a lamp and emptied the retired midwife's jewellery box.

He tried to put out the blaze before fleeing the scene and burgling another nearby home while the occupants, a mother and baby, were inside.

The woman managed to escape with her daughter and alerted police, who found Fyle still in the house, armed with a knife. He jumped over fences and leapt on to a roof, where he threatened to harm himself during a five-hour stand-off (main).
