Cancer charity: Stephen an 'extraordinary person'

The boss of the Teenage Cancer Trust charity says Stephen Sutton is an 'extraordinary person', who has given the charity an 'extraordinary 24 hours', after raising more than £1million.

Siobhan Dunn, the charity's Chief Executive, said they were a relatively small charity that raises £12million each year, but Stephen has managed more than £1million by himself.

She added that Stephen had done all he could to raise funds for the charity, as seven young people a day are diagnosed with cancer.
