Cancer operation cancelled - with only one day's notice

A cancer patient from Leeds has revealed how his complex robotic operation was cancelled - because of a shortage of hospital beds. Andrew Claridge says he was told in an email that the life saving procedure had to be postponed for weeks - because Leeds Teaching Hospitals Trust is experiencing unprecedented levels of demand. Victoria Whittam talks to Andrew and the vice president of the Royal College of Surgeons Ian Eardley.
