Smear test 'missed' Widnes woman's cancer

18 June 2014 Last updated at 21:03 BST

A Cheshire woman diagnosed with cancer was wrongly given the all-clear after a smear test.

Severe risk signs were missed when Vivien Reynolds, 45, had the cervical cancer test in 2008, her legal team said.

When she was diagnosed with cancer in 2011, three NHS reviews of the screening found pre-cancerous cells.

The Warrington and Halton Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has apologised.
