'Cyber surgery' could revolutionise cancer treatment

Doctors will soon be able to remove cancer from inside the body without even breaking the skin. It's called 'cyber surgery', and experts say it's about to revolutionise cancer treatment.

The Freeman Hospital in Newcastle will be the first outside London to do it. It will allow doctors to kill cancers they currently can't reach, and reduce radiotherapy treatments for thousands of patients across the North East and Cumbria.
