Sick craze that kills.

HAPPY slapping - the name given to attacks on innocent people which are filmed by the thugs on mobile phones - can be fatal.

Retired care worker Ekram Haque, 67, was battered to death by a teenager as the other took pictures in Tooting, London, last year. The pair were jailed for less than five years. In 2006 Mark Watts, 44, drowned when two teens pushed him into an Essex lake after filming themselves taunting the mentally disabled man.

Barman David Morley died from 44 injuries inflicted by a London gang including a girl of 14 who filmed his agony.
