Amsterdam to ban 'disrespectful' tours of red-light district

Wednesday 21:50 GMT

Amsterdam is to ban guided tours of its red-light district as part of an effort to restrict the increasing throngs of visitors in its historic city centre, and because “they are not respectful” to sex workers. “It is no longer acceptable in this age to see sex workers as a tourist attraction,” city councillor Udo Kock said.

According to the Algemeen Dagblad newspaper, a proliferation of pub and bar crawls, as well as tours with names such as “Red light tours with Mistress Lola”, has led to more than 1,000 tour groups every week pausing on the Oudekerksplein, a square in the middle of the red-light district, with a record of 48 in one hour.

What are the most random football rivalries and why?

Wednesday 14:30 GMT

Norwich fans have a fierce hatred of Wolves because of the Kevin Muscat tackle that left a young Craig Bellamy with a broken leg in 1998, while Brighton and Crystal Palace’s mutual loathing goes back to a feud in 1977.

Arguably it dates back to the 1958 semi-final, but it certainly goes back to the 1998 final, Zizou’s top, Ronaldo’s collapse, and all that. More than 6,000km separate Iran and South Korea, but that hasn’t stopped these two Asian football giants from developing a fierce rivalry, which started when Team Melli tonked the Taeguk Warriors 6-2 at the 1996 Asian Cup.

Can exercise reverse the ageing process?

Wednesday 14:30 GMT

The greater health of older exercisers compared to their sedentary counterparts can lead people to believe physical activity can reverse or slow down the ageing process.

We often confuse the effects of inactivity with the ageing process itself, and believe certain diseases are purely the result of getting older. So, if an active 80-year-old has a similar physiology to an inactive 50-year-old, it is the younger person who appears older than they should be, not the other way around.
