Teenage schoolchildren are being asked to take a chlamydia test in class

Parents of children in Brighton and Hove have complained after their 15- and 16-year-old teenagers were asked to take a chlamydia test in class.

All secondary state schools in the area, except for one Catholic school, have signed up to the scheme.

Brighton and Hove Council, who are running the scheme, said that it was in keeping with national guidelines and is designed to "demystify the test". [Telegraph, 21 September]
