Prostate cancer survivors spark inspiration for film

A new film with an all-star cast is aiming to raise awareness of prostate cancer by telling the story of a cancer support group.

The inspiration behind the film comes from members of a real support group - one of many across the country - who meet in north London to speak about their experiences.

Between them they hope to encourage more men to talk openly about a disease that one in eight of all men will be diagnosed with at some point in their lives.

ITV News correspondent Lewis Vaughan Jones went to meet them:
