<b>Monday 23 June:</b> Fight night, school sex clinics and knee bother for Anderson

Published on June 23rd 2008.

A FIGHT NIGHT is due to be staged in Manchester. Plans are underway for the night which will aim to find Britain's hardest bouncer. Sixteen nightclub doormen will fight each other for the title and for a £10,000 prize. However, Manchester City Council has condemned the idea. Pat Karney, spokesman for Manchester City Council told the BBC: “ You're going to get some of the idiots with too much alcohol down them saying, 'I hear you're the hardest doorman in Britain - show me'... I'm hoping that they'll think again about this.”

SEX CLINICS are to be launched in hundreds of schools. The service will offer condoms, pregnancy tests and morning-after pills to students. Supporters of the development have hailed it as an important step in cutting the number of teen pregnancies. According to the Sex Education Forum, one in 20 secondary schools in England are now offering children contraceptives without their parents' knowledge.

HIGH WINDS are affecting parts of Greater Manchester and Cheshire today, causing several stately homes and gardens to be closed. Gusts of up to 65mph have been forecast for the North West which is said to be the main path for the extreme weather conditions.

UNITED MIDFIELDER, Anderson, is said to be recovering well from a knee injury sustained from a challenge by Liverpool’s Javier Mascherano in Brazil's 0-0 draw with Argentina on Wednesday. He is set to undergo a scan to determine the extent of the damage, although doctors have said it doesn't seem serious.
