Testing for cervical cancer among women in England has fallen to a 10-year low, a cancer charity said.
The charity said many feel the screening is not necessary or relevant to them, while others are unaware of the causes, symptoms and ways to prevent the cancer.
Some women miss or delay tests because of work commitments, while others book time off work because they are too embarrassed to discuss it with their bosses.
Samme Allen, 37, tells Daybreak how she waited ten years before being tested.
