The twin sister of a 19-year-old who died from cervical cancer despite repeated pleas to doctors for a smear test has said she believes her sibling would still be alive if she had been screened.
Ashleigh Jones told Good Morning Britain her sister Sophie would still be alive if doctors had given her a smear test after she complained of pelvic pains, prolonged menstruation and loss of appetite.
She said: "I think it would have saved her life. I think even if she had had it two months earlier, it could have saved her life."
Sophie's Mum Peri Cawley, Ashleigh and other sister Chelsea were speaking ahead of a debate in Parliament lower the age women are eligible for smear tests from 25, in the wake of Sophie's death.
