This message is serious and has been passed to us from Cheshire RFU..

Could you please cascade as quickly as possible as this came through our
NHS web page.

For your information, a couple of weeks ago, in the Odeon cinema,
Festival Park, a person sat on something sharp in one of the seats. When
she stood up to see what it was, a needle was found poking through the
seat with an attached note saying, "You have been infected with HIV".

The Centres for Disease Control in Birmingham, reports similar events
have taken place in several other cities recently.

ALL of the needles tested HAVE been found positive for HIV. The CDC also
reports that needles have been found in the coin return areas of pay
phones and coke machines. Everyone is asked to use extreme caution when
confronted with these types of situations. All public chairs should be
thoroughly but safely inspected prior to any use. A thorough visual
inspection is considered the bare minimum. Further more, they ask that
everyone notify their family members and friends of the potential
dangers, as well.

The previous information was sent from Hanley police station to all of
the local councils in the Staffs area and was interdepartmentally

We were all asked to pass this to as many people as possible."

Im pretty sure this turned out to be a hoax back when it was first reported - none of the organisations mentioned in the email had heard anything about it, and it was frequently reproduced with different place names. Still, better safe than sorry huh? :)
