<b>Thursday 22 May:</b> No pill for religious pharmacist and no victory parade for United

Published on May 22nd 2008.


A PHARMACIST in Droylsden has refused a customer the morning after pill because of his own religious beliefs, according to reports. A 36-year-old woman went to the Sainsburys chemist for emergency contraception but was told by the Muslim pharmacist that she couldn't have it because he didn't agree with it. The Royal Pharmaceutical Society's ethics code says if the morning-after pill is against a pharmacist's personal, religious or moral beliefs they are within their rights not to supply it.

CCTV FOOTAGE has been released following the assault of a bus driver in Chorlton. The 42-year-old driver asked three people to get off the bus on Manchester Road on Thursday 6 September, 2007. They then proceeded to kick and punch him, causing head and body injuries. Police are urging people who regularly travel on the number 86 bus route through Chorlton to see if they recognise the men.

A VICTORY PARADE for Manchester United will not be taking place. Despite reporting 'fantastic' behaviour in the city last night, police said that nothing has changed in regards to a parade. United players will also reportedly be leaving through a back door of the airport, with fans missing the chance to applaud their champions.

FOLLOWING the Champions League win last night, Manchester is now preparing to welcome boxer Ricky Hatton home. The boxer takes on Mexico's Juan Lazcano at the City of Manchester Stadium on Saturday in what he has described as 'the biggest fight of my career.'
