'Love your Liver' visits Middlesbrough

A pop up clinic is taking place in Middlesbrough on Teesside today to check members of the public for early signs of liver disease.

The 'Love your Liver' campaign uses a specialist scanner to detect the easly signs of liver damage which may be a sign of a more serious problem.

Doctors running the nationwide roadshow, which is in Berwick Hills in Middlesbrough this afternoon, say that symptoms of liver disease often go unnoticed until it is too late - making early detection vital.
