Civic honour for Linda McCartney cancer centre

A breast cancer treatment centre in Liverpool is being granted the Freedom of the City.

The Linda McCartney Centre, based at the Royal Liverpool Hospital, is named after Sir Paul McCartney's wife, who died from breast cancer in 1998.

The honour is to recognise work being done at the unit on advanced and innovative treatments for cancer.
