Football leagues across the United Kingdom have been urged to stop using single-use plastics.

A House of Commons committee has written to the chairmen of the English, Welsh, Scottish and Northern Irish football leagues in a bid to encourage them to follow the Premier League.

England's top tier pledged in April that it would be introducing a series of measures to phase out single-use plastics in its operations and supply chains over the next two years.

Labour MP Mary Creagh, who chairs the Environmental Audit Committee, called on the chairmen to "mobilise the power of sport" and make the move away from single-use plastics a reality.

Ms Creagh also asked whether each league had considered introducing a bottle return scheme.

She added: "Plastic litter ruins our streets, chokes our seas and endangers wildlife. We all need to do our bit to tackle the scourge of plastic pollution.

"There is a huge opportunity for sports organisations to reduce the use of throwaway plastic at matches and encourage fans to reduce, reuse and recycle. I want the UK's football leagues to show leadership on this issue."

A cat that once ate an entire cheesecake is among three Scottish contenders in a pet slimming competition.

Chester, from Dunbar, East Lothian, who is 52% over his ideal body weight at 7.6kg (1st 3lb).
 
He needs to lose 2.6kg (6lb) to reach his ideal weight.
 
Owner Lisa Gilmour said: "We realised everyone in the house was feeding him without knowing he'd already being fed, so he was getting fed by all four of us every day.
 
"We've tried to help him lose weight, even putting a collar on him that says, 'Do not feed me!' for the neighbours, but that hasn't worked.
 
"He eats whatever he can find, including crisps left on the floor by the kids. He even stole my dad's cheesecake that was on the kitchen counter."

PDSA vet Olivia Anderson-Nathan said: "Pet obesity is an epidemic that is seriously impacting the lives of millions of pets across the country. As with humans, carrying excess weight has serious health implications for our four-legged friends.

"It increases the chances of life-limiting and life-threatening conditions such as arthritis, diabetes and heart diseases.

"With the help of PDSA and Pet Fit Club, these pets and their owners are making the necessary diet, exercise and lifestyle changes to get down to healthier weights. We will support them every step of the way over the next six months to ensure they succeed."
