Manchester United invite teen who grew up in brothel for trial
THE poverty-stricken son of a sex worker is going from red light to Red Devil - after being offered a dream trial with Manchester United. Rajib Roy, 16, will be flying to the UK on April 25 to train with the Premier League side's academy team, after impressing scouts. The teenager has endured a tough childhood - even by India's standards - growing up in a brothel in Kolkata's notorious Sonagachi neighbourhood. The neighbourhood is home to over 12,000 sex workers and a mere visit to the area is considered taboo. Rajib was relentlessly bullied because of his mother's profession and now attends Rahul Vidya Niketan in Sealdah, a special school for the children of sex workers. Rajib will be attending a 10-day training session with Manchester United and given a tour of Old Trafford, known as the Theatre of Dreams.

Amazing CCTV footage captures the moment a pram rolls under a train - and the baby boy survives
THIS incredible CCTV footage shows the moment when a pram rolls under a train in Melbourne and the baby boys survives - just seven months after an almost identical incident. The 15-month-old boy is the latest accident survived without any serious injuries, thanks to the quick thinking of the driver. He stopped the train as quickly as possible, grabbing the pushchair from under the front of the train. Moments before, the pram was dragged along the tracks for several meters while the boy's grandmother, three year old brother and other members of the public looked on in horror. The grandmother of the boys told paramedics afterwards she only turned away for a second when the near tragedy occurred. She was also with the baby's three-year-old brother, who luckily was standing with her at the time.
