A 19-year-old man has died after falling "a number of floors" down a communal stairway in Plymouth.

A spokesman said the death is not being treated as suspicious and next of kin have been informed.

Council drops Punch and Judy for 'trivialising' domestic violence

Punch and Judy cut from Barry Island over domestic violence fears
It's a traditional part of the British seaside experience - but there'll be no Punch and Judy for holidaymakers in Barry Island this year. 

That's because the local council has decided to drop the puppet show, saying it 'trivialises' domestic violence. 

John Styles was awarded an MBE for services to the arts, especially Punch and Judy.  He came to the PM studio to tell Peter Hunt why the attraction is just a bit of harmless fun.

Mr Davies said the Conservatives enjoyed "some strong results"

"In this new era of five-party politics, we have strengthened winning positions in many held seats.

"Obviously, we are disappointed to lose some regional list seats in this election and I pay tribute to those outgoing members who have represented their areas with distinction and pride."

However, he said the party had shown "clear momentum".
