Comedian Johnny Vegas was in Liverpool today as building work began on Liverpool's first specialist cancer hospital.
Vegas was joined by ex-Everton player Ian Snodin at the site of the new Clatterbridge Cancer Centre on West Derby Street.
The new centre will provide highly-specialist chemotherapy and other drug therapies, radiotherapy, inpatient care, outpatients, cancer support and rehabilitation, bone marrow transplant, a teenage and young adult unit, and urgent cancer care.
The new hospital will be in addition to the centre's existing hospitals in Wirral and Aintree.
"The new hospital is absolutely vital. It may not have affected you, but with cancer we know at some point it will and this hospital will help transform cancer care, not only for our families but for families in the future."
