A cancer charity is touring Cumbrian schools to teach pupils the warning signs to look out for.

The Teenage Cancer trust is aiming to get to every secondary school in the county to raise awareness of the disease among young people.

The worry is that 37 per cent of all teenage cancer diagnosis are diagnosed at A&E. We need to get it so that they're going to their doctors earlier and they're picking up on symptoms.
