A young couple from Chatham have married at Medway Maritime Hospital in Kent after they discovered the groom, who has bowel cancer, had only weeks to live.

Felix Glenny, 23, married Cola, 22, in the hospital's social club with their children Ralph, two, and daughter Pearl, four months, beside them.

Martin Ledwick, of Cancer Research UK, said bowel cancer in a man so young was rare - with most people who develop the disease aged over 50.
