The victim, who cannot be named because of his age, continues to recover slowly in his native France after spending months in intensive care.

  Michael Sheen: Being a new parent is really exciting Hollywood star Michael Sheen has claimed that being a new parent is "really exciting".The Hollywood star - who also has a 20-year-old daughter called Lily Mo Sheen with Kate Beckinsale - told the Times newspaper: "For all the ups and downs of parenthood, all it takes is for my daughter Lyra to look at me and smile, and all is well with the world. It's been a while since I've been a new parent - my other daughter, Lily, is 20 - but it's really exciting.

Bravery, from west London, was arrested moments after the incident on the tenth-storey balcony of the tourist attraction on 4 August. The teenager, who has autistic spectrum disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder and was likely to have a personality disorder, has been held at Broadmoor Hospital since mid-October.

The court previously heard how Bravery was seen wandering about the viewing platform before picking up his victim and throwing him over the edge. He then approached a member of staff, explaining: “I think I’ve murdered someone, I’ve just thrown someone off the balcony.”

Bravery said he heard voices tell him he had to hurt or kill people, the court was told.

He later told police he had to prove a point “to every idiot” who said he had no mental health problems, asking police if the incident was going to be on the news.

Meyer gave birth to a boy seven months after announcing her pregnancy.

Bravery said: “I wanted to be on the news, who I am and why I did it, so when it is official no-one can say anything else.”

In a series of social media posts, which have since been deleted, Piers Bravery – father of the defendant – attempted to raise awareness of autism and its treatment.

In one tweet to health secretary Matt Hancock, posted less than three months before the incident, Mr Bravery said: “Yes, @MattHancock, you do have a duty. You are a public servant so do your job and stop more children dying and being abused in these repugnant institutions.”

The court previously heard how Bravery’s mental health deteriorated in custody and he spent some time in segregation.

The public was initially banned from knowing Bravery’s identity due to a reporting restriction protecting the then-17-year-old from being named.

CPS prosecutor Emma Jones said it was “extraordinary” Bravery’s victim survived the fall. She said: “This was a terrifying experience for the boy’s parents.”
