Leukaemia appeal funds five West Midlands nurses

Fun run A fun run was held at Sutton Park in May

A leukaemia appeal which aims to pay for specialist West Midlands nurses has raised more than £125,000 - enough for five of them.

BBC WM 95.6's Red Alert Appeal is working with charity Cure Leukaemia on the appeal, which began in February.

The nurses, who will help administer new treatments, each cost about £25,000 a year.

There were about 7,000 adult leukaemia patients in the area, the charity has said.

A fun run at Sutton Park in May raised £30,000 towards the appeal.
