The new superbug prompted a national alert last year when it emerged in Leeds, as one of the main treatments had become useless against it. Public Health England acknowledges measures to contain the outbreak have been of "limited success".

France makes paying for sex illegal

It has taken more than two years to pass the controversial legislation because of differences between the two houses of parliament over the issue.

Sweden was the first country to criminalise those who pay for sex rather than the prostitutes, introducing the law in 1999. Other countries have since adopted the so-called "Nordic model": Norway in 2008, Iceland in 2009, and Northern Ireland in 2014. Earlier this year, the European parliament approved a resolution calling for the law to be adopted throughout the continent.

Isle of Man to give equal rights to same sex marriage

“The government of the Isle of Man plans to incorporate same-sex marriage within the island’s main marriage legislation, the Marriage Act 1984. It will not replicate the flawed and discriminatory same-sex marriage law that was enacted for England and Wales in 2013, which created two separate marriage laws - the previously existing 1949 Act for opposite-sex couples only and the new 2013 Act for same-sex couples only. Separate is not equal. One marriage law for everyone, as the Isle of Man proposes, is the right approach,” noted Peter Tatchell, Director of the human rights organisation, the Peter Tatchell Foundation.
