Some surgery patients at Peterborough Hospital are being given the option of watching films during their operation, rather than having a general anaesthetic.

Experts there have found that some would rather have a local or regional anaesthetic, and watch a film of their choice rather than being put under. As well as providing diverting entertainment, it could help patients recover quicker.
