A young woman from Essex is recovering well after having a double mastectomy to protect herself from cancer.
Like Angelina Jolie, Katie Mumford from Colchester has a genetic mutation giving her up to an 87% chance of developing the disease.
Katie's mother and her sister have both had breast cancer and survived.
Katie, who was 27 at the time of the operation three months ago, says it was a brave but sensible decision.
