The babies killed by meth addicts - including a six-month-old boy hurled against a wall because his mum's boyfriend thought he was a spider - and why the drug drives them to kill innocent children
Ten years ago a former GP of the year warned that ice would kill more children than crack cocaine which flooded Australia's streets in the 1980s. Making his grim prediction, Dr Ross Wilson said: 'One doctor told me ice is the worst drug he has seen as far as infant mortality is concerned. It's worse than crack cocaine.' A decade later and his forecast appears to be coming true: In seven years, ice-related deaths have doubled to 300 a year and instances of ice-addled parents killing their children are becoming shockingly common.

Do these dots look blue or purple? Mind-bending optical illusion reveals how your perceptions of colour can be easily skewed
A new optical illusion has revealed just how easily our perceptions of colour can be skewed. The illusion, by Harvard University, involves grid of 1,000 individual dots, which range from very blue to darker hues of purple. Researchers asked a group of volunteers to say if they thought each individual dot was blue or purple. During the trials, dots that the participants previously identified as purple looked increasingly blue to them. Researchers say this is because it could be that the human brain doesn't make decisions based on hard rules but on context of what it's seen before.
