Actors who played twins in the Harry Potter movies officially opened a teenage cancer unit in Birmingham.

James and Oliver Phelps, who played the Weasley brothers, opened the £370,000 Teenage Cancer Trust's unit at Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

The unit replaces the charity's former one at the hospital and is the third place in the city.

Facilities include a kitchen, an education room and a place to listen to music and log onto the web.

A spokesman from the trust said the unit gives young people more of a choice about where they can get their care.
