Lung Cancer Awareness Campaign Launches - Persistent Cough? See Your Doctor

Lung cancer is England's biggest cancer killer. A new campaign is launched in Northamptonshire with the message: "If you've been coughing for three weeks, it's time to see your doctor."

Stuart talks to Ernie Burton, who's now in remission from lung cancer - to Rhian Langford, from Macmillan cancer support based at Northampton General Hospital - to Lesley Holland, a lung cancer specialist nurse at Kettering General Hospital - and to Dr Stephen Rogers, a Public Health Consultant with the NHS in Northamptonshire.
