Could early diagnosis have saved cancer victim's life?

The family of a young mother who died of cervical cancer want to know whether her life could have been saved if she had been diagnosed earlier.

Keely Devine from Leeds, was 23 when she passed away. Despite complaining of symptoms during a number of trips to her GP and the A&E department of Leeds General Infirmary, the cancer wasn't picked up for over 2 years. Kate Walby reports.

A spokesperson from NHS England, West Yorkshire, said: "This is a tragic case and our thoughts are with Keely Devine's family. Out of respect for confidentiality, we will not be commenting on this individual patient's case.”
