Martial arts: Top celebrities will be among the spectators when three Hemel Hempstead fighters step into the cage.

Professional fighter Denniston Sutherland, who runs Hemel Martial Arts in Fensomes Alley, has secured places on the fight card for his budding students at the exclusive invitation-only event in Manchester.

Edward Arthur, 21, Jason Cooper 20, and Josh Bangert, 18, will compete in semi-professional bouts on Sunday, October 2.

Denniston, 38, said: “It is good exposure for them. They might be able to pick up sponsors and they get another fight under their belts.”
