<b>Monday 16 June:</b> Naked cyclists, Wythenshawe Hospital gets it's rat out and Fergie is nothing without Ronaldo

Published on June 16th 2008.

NAKED CYCLISTS took to the streets of Manchester city centre last week. The convoy of nude cyclists attracted an avid following of onlookers on Cross Street, Market Street and Oldham Street at around 7pm on Friday evening. The protest was in light of rising fuel prices and also comes ahead of Bike Week- a week which promotes cycling as a source of fitness and fun.

RATS have been discovered in Wythenshawe Hospital's kitchen. Health inspectors ordered a deep clean of the premises but another rat was found a few days later. The kitchen has now been closed down completely. Three health trusts in Greater Manchester have failed to meet hygiene standards and research has revealed that 30 percent of NHS hospitals in the country are unfit for use.

SIR ALEX FERGUSON will leave Manchester United if Cristiano Ronaldo is transferred elsewhere, according to the Telegraph. Real Madrid is reportedly offering £75m for the Portuguese winger, as well as a record breaking salary of £182,000 a week. Ferguson has already said he will consider retiring within three years, but if Ronaldo is transferred against his will, he may leave even sooner.
