<b>Friday 24 October:</b> Doctor title banned, shopkeeper banned and City scared of a throw-in

Published on October 24th 2008.

A KNUTSFORD DENTAL SURGERY has been ordered to stop calling a dentist 'doctor' in magazine adverts. The advert for The Woodvale Clinic offered 'a comprehensive range of services to achieve an improved youthful and attractive appearance', including 'facial fillers and lip enhancements' under dentist John W Stowall's honorary title. The Advertising Standards Authority said that the use of Dr misleadingly implied he is qualified to conduct facial surgery.

A STRETFORD SHOPKEEPER has been banned from selling alcohol. Trading standards officers caught Mirza Baig serving a 16-year-old girl alcohol at the Thorosaver shop on Park Road, Stretford. They branded it the 'worst' off-license in Trafford because it repeatedly sold alcohol to youngsters.

CHESHIRE POLICE have appointed a new chief constable. David Whatton, currently Assistant Chief Constable at Greater Manchester Police (GMP), will take up the post on 1 December. Whatton said: "I am delighted to have been appointed as Chief Constable of Cheshire Constabulary which has a long and proud tradition. I will use my skills and previous experience to lead the force and I want the people of Cheshire, Halton and Warrington to feel proud of their police.”

MANCHESTER CITY are preparing for a visit from Stoke City on Sunday. Mark Hughes is reportedly worried about Rory Delap's throw-ins. He told mcfc.co.uk: “He has got an unbelievable throw and you can say what you like about the tactic but it works. If you’ve got that kind of weapon in your armoury you’re going to use it.”
