Two people were arrested at a rally by a white supremacist group in Manchester today.

Around 50 members of the group, called White Pride, waved flags and marched through Piccadilly Gardens.

A similar number of anti-fascist campaigners staged a counter-demonstration with a line of police separating the two sides.

Greater Manchester Police said two arrests were made, one for a breach of the peace. The second was also held over a public order offence.

Cameron: Tories would have a 'truly seven day NHS'

David Cameron has unveiled plans for a "truly seven day NHS" under a Conservative Government.

For years it's been too hard to access the NHS out of hours. But illness doesn't 'respect working hours. Heart attacks, major accidents, babies. These things don't just come from 9-5.

With a future Conservative Government we would have a truly seven day NHS.

– David Cameron

The PM made the pledge in a speech to the Conservative Conference.

Fans have been given the first look at the new James Bond film Spectre, starring Wirral actor Daniel Craig, in a teaser trailer released online.

The secret agent's past looks set to haunt him in the 24th big screen instalment of the spy series, with 007 receiving a cryptic message leading him on a trail to uncover the truth behind shady crime syndicate Spectre, while M fights for the secret service's political life.

Craig, now in his fourth outing as Bond, was raised in Wirral where he attended Hilbre High School in West Kirby.

He left when he was 16 to attend the National Youth Theatre.

Celebrity fans were already getting excited about its release, with David Walliams tweeting: "Spectre looks astonishing from the new teaser trailer. Sam Mendes might just achieve the impossible with this film and better."
