A Welsh cancer charity is warning people to take extra care as they prepare for a Sunday in the sun.

Recent figures from Tenovus show malignant melanoma is now one of the most common cancers in people aged 15-35 and cases have almost quadrupled in the last 30 years.

The charity is touring beaches, schools and parks in an ice cream van to raise awareness of the risks of sitting out in the sun.
