Sir John Hurt has been speaking of his 'optimism' after receiving what his agent has called 'very positive news' about his treatment for pancreatic cancer.
The Chesterfield-born actor, who is 75 years old, had refused to let the disease stop him working after being diagnosed earlier this year.

The two-time Oscar nominee revealed in June that he had been diagnosed with cancer but vowed to continue working and today is heading off to Belfast to start more filming.
