Nagging can be good for you

If you are unfit and over-30, then you can benefit from being nagged by family and friends.

A study claims people who are inactive need regular reminders and pestering by spouses and children.

The media and GPs appear to play a similar role, providing 'alarm bells' to shock those who are unfit about the potential consequences ofa sedentary lifestyle.

The aim of this study was to help people examine their lifestyle as a whole and establish what the key factors are in influencing their activity levels. The good news is that the study suggests once you are active and healthy, you no longer need nagging. Most importantly, however, the suggestion that 'nagging is good' should only be applied to getting healthy and active!

Robbery in York

A cash delivery driver has been robbed in York. He was attacked by men wearing balacalvas who took a cash box before leaving in a car. He's now being treated in hospital for a head injury.

Clearly we need to identify who was responsible for this incident as soon as possible. There will have been numerous people on Front Street at the time of the robbery and I urge anyone who witnessed the incident or knows who the suspects are to contact the police or Crimestoppers as soon as they can.

Residents fight housing development

People in the East Yorkshire village of Market Weighton say they'll fight plans for a housing development and a medical centre.

Proposals have been put forward to build the centre and 49 homes near a cul-de-sac on Northgate Vale.

But people who live there are concerned about the impact of traffic. They say their cul-de-sac would, in effect, become an access road and they claim up to two hundred cars an hour would use it. They say the road was never designed for heavy traffic.
