午夜的女人Brian Dennehy, who has died aged 81, was a hulking character actor and former US Marine who seemed to play every tough-cookie supporting role in American film in the 1980s, before belatedly proving himself to be an outstanding stage performer. Dennehy frequently played cops, most notably in the inaugural Rambo film, First Blood (1982). As the small-town sheriff pursuing the soldier-turned-drifter John Rambo (Sylvester Stallone), Dennehy was the reactionary villain of the piece, but he also managed to convey the character’s fundamental decency. He brought similar nuances to his portrayals of dogged police detectives in the thrillers Gorky Park (1983) and F/X (1986); the corrupt Sheriff Cobb in the Western Silverado (1985); and the blustering and possibly homicidal district attorney in Presumed Innocent (1990).

The teenager who threw a six-year-old from a viewing platform at the Tate Modern laughed and told the child’s father “Yes, I am mad” before blaming social services for his actions, a court has heard. Jonty Bravery, 18, who is autistic, has pleaded guilty to attempted murder after scooping up the boy and hurling him over the railings “without any hesitation” last August in front of his horrified parents. A sentence hearing at the Old Bailey heard that he had planned the incident “well in advance” and had researched the easiest way to kill someone as he had been "seriously unhappy" and wanted to get out of his supported accommodation. Deanna Heer, prosecuting, told the court: "He said he had to prove a point to 'every idiot' who had ever said he did not have a mental health problem that he should not be in the community." She said he was under one-on-one supervision with Hammersmith and Fulham Social Services at the time of the attack, but was allowed to go out unaccompanied for four-hour periods. However, a recording apparently taken by one of his care workers in Autumn 2018, in which Bravery can be heard talking about his plans to kill somebody by pushing them off a building, suggests that opportunities to stop the attack were missed.
