Cosmetic surgery industry has become 'trivialised'

The cosmetic surgery industry is "booming" but has also become "trivialised" and needs controlling, according to a review by health experts.

Chaired by Britain's most senior doctor, the review judged the cosmetic surgery industry a "crisis waiting to happen".

Commissioned in the wake of the PIP breast implant scandal, the report recommends tighter controls on who can carry out procedures, including BOTOX and other 'fillers'.

It concludes by warning that having a filler gives people no more protection than buying an everyday item like a toothbrush or a pen.

Anti-social behaviour is a 'blight' on people's lives

Greater Manchester Police's Chief Constable Garry Shewan has responded to figures which claim Manchester is the 'anti-social capital' of Britain.

Mr Shewan said anti-social behaviour is a "blight" on people's lives, he added:

Greater Manchester Police has had significant reductions in anti-social behaviour (ASB), and the number of incidents is falling year-on-year. However, the Force is not complacent given that the total number of incidents ending February 2013 was 134,233.

Public perception of ASB as a problem has fallen, as have reported incidents, and there has been a rise in perceptions that the police and partners are tackling local problems and doing a good job.
