Doctors in Newcastle have secured a machine which they say will revolutionise cancer treatment.
The new equipment is called 'cyber surgery' and will allow doctors to target tumours that are currently impossible to remove.
It will also cut the number of radiotherapy treatments that patients require. It has been made possible thanks to donations to cancer charities, which have paid for nearly half of the new equipment.
