A teenager from Chelmsford who's undergone brain surgery twice in 3 months is warning that symptoms should not be ignored.

Beckie Hiley had suffered severe headaches for months, before a swelling at the backs of her eyes was spotted during an eye test.

"Headaches are a common symptom of a brain tumour but brain tumours are really rare, it's where a headache is persistent, recurring or presents with some of these other symptoms that people should seek advice, the important thing with brain tumours is to be symptom aware and early diagnosis is key."
