Running to save lives

Men have been putting on their trainers - and Y-fronts - for a male version of the Race for Life. Two local fundraisers have organised the event in Hastings to help raise awareness of men's cancers. More than 100 runners took part.

Nashreen Issa was there and spoke to organisers Jo Brazier and Hollie Chant as well as cancer survivor Adam Hart.

Also in the report is Chloe Louise Williams from Cancer Research UK, Hamed Ovaisi and Sam Thomas from a five-a-side football league.
