The British Association of Dermatologists (ABD) blamed the surge in cases of skin cancer on people taking more holidays to hot countries and tanning as a "fashion statement".

"As holidays to sunny locations become cheaper and tanned skin remains a desirable fashion statement, we have seen an inevitable increase in skin cancer incidence rates and the associated health and financial burden they place on the nation.
