80pc of women are depressed Teacher caught grooming pupil Tana Ramsay voted off Ice Turkey shaken by earthquake

Three out of four people in Britain suffer from depression at some point but only a third seek help, a poll found today.

Women are more likely to feel depressed than men, with 80pc saying they regularly or occasionally feel down or unable to cope.

Money is the biggest cause of depression, with more than half of all people surveyed saying they have felt down about money over the past 12 months. Men are particularly likely to have linked their depression to the recession, where as women have been worried about family or relationships.



Teacher caught grooming pupil

A supply teacher at a private all-girls school who was found guilty of sexually grooming a teenage pupil will be sentenced today.

John Cope (44) exchanged flirty messages and chatted online and on the phone with the girl while he was an IT teacher at Brighton and Hove High School in East Sussex. At Lewes Crown Court last December, Cope, of Stow Road, Ixworth, Suffolk, was convicted of sexual grooming but cleared of two counts of causing or inciting a child to engage in sexual activity, between January and May 2008. Cope is on bail.



Tana Ramsay voted off Ice

Gordon Ramsay's wife Tana faced her own Waterloo when she was voted off Dancing On Ice after skating to the Abba hit.

Ramsay, who always looked nervous on the ice, faced former Coronation Street actor Danny Young in the skate-off after they received the fewest viewer votes. The judging panel voted unanimously to save Young, who has been one of their favourites since the series began.



Turkey shaken by earthquake

A moderately strong earthquake with a preliminary magnitude of 4.7 shook central Turkey.

There were no immediate reports of any injury or damage.

The Istanbul-based Kandilli Observatory said the quake occurred at 6am local time, in the central province of Sivas.

Earthquakes are frequent in Turkey, much of which lies on the North Anatolian fault.
