Super-Gonorrhea hit Britain

Highly drug-resistant gonorrhea is spreading in the north of England with an outbreak centered in Leeds.
According to sexual health doctors, one of the main treatments has become useless against the new strain of the sexually transmitted infection.
Twelve cases have been confirmed in Leeds and a further four have been reported in Macclesfield, Oldham and Scunthorpe.
However, there are likely to be more undiagnosed cases.
The outbreak started in March.
Dr Mike Gent from Public Health England urged people to practice safe sex including the use of condoms.
