London sees a drop in STI rates

Health experts say there has been a drop in sexually transmitted infections in the capital.

Public Health England says the overall number of cases fell to just over one hundred and 17 thousand last year, down 5 per cent on 2015.

That's still the highest rate in the UK.

The capital saw the first fall in gonorrehea cases in eight years, but a rise in the most common STIs.

Professor Yvonne Doyle from Public Health England explains the new figures.
