Fullback Freddie Steward mastered an aerial bombardment to help England to a 20-10 victory over Wales in the Six Nations at Cardiff's Principality Stadium on Saturday.

For Nomsa Sibiya, who lives with her epileptic 22-year-old son, Sbusiso, the rude awakening came in the form of a neighbour’s loud voice.
