Stephen Sutton hits back at Twitter trolls

Teenage cancer patient Stephen Sutton - who helped raise more than £3 million through his story of his battle with the disease - has hit back at Twitter trolls who complained they feel "duped" by his recovery.

Stephen, from Burntwood, Staffordshire, wrote what he thought would be his final blog last month after tumours collapsed one of his lungs.

But he made an unexpected turn for the better - and after coughing up one of the tumours and undergoing surgery, he was able to return home.

His recovery - though his cancer remains terminal - sparked complaints from trolls on Twitter, who accused him of "duping" people into donating to the Teenage Cancer Trust.

The account has since been deleted.
