Published on November 28th 2008.

A MEASLES OUTBREAK in Cheshire has resulted in schools offering the MMR vaccine to pupils. Health officials have reported 62 cases of the illness mainly around Crewe, Sandbach and Middlewich with more then 50% of cases occurring in children of nursery and primary school age. Cheshire has the highest rate of reported measles cases in the UK outside of London in 2008.

TV AND RADIO PRESENTER Terry Christian has lost a court battle against the BBC over the loss of his presenting job on BBC Radio Manchester. Christian, 45, was claiming unfair dismissal after being dropped earlier this year. However, a judge ruled against him saying he was hired by the station as a self-employed freelance and was not a permanent employee.

THE CONGESTION CHARGE VOTE progress is to be closely guarded until results day. The first of the votes will start to be processed on Monday using computer scanning technology but no members of staff, including senior managers, will be able to monitor the rolling total. Results will be announced on the afternoon of Friday 12 December.

He told manutd.com: “Last season we lost six points [against City], and although we ended up winning the league, it was very disappointing.”
