Experts say people should use condoms
The number of people being infected with sexually transmitted diseases in Leicestershire is rising.

Figures from Eastern Leicester and Leicester City West Primary care trusts show a rise in the number of people attending health clinics.

About 10,000 people attended the clinics in 2000, but that rose to 14,000 last year.

Health experts say there was an increase in the number of men with chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV and herpes.

For women, chlamydia and HIV were on the rise.
