A woman from Derby who was diagnosed with cervical cancer has told ITV News Central she regrets repeatedly missing her smear test appointments.

Rebecca Hazeldine is now unable to have more children and is urging other women not to make the same mistake. Official figures show almost one and a half million women didn't go for a screening last year.
