Lung cancer breath test trialled

Scientists in Cambridge have developed a revolutionary device that could be used to detect lung cancer on a person's breath.

The breathalyser is being tested in NHS hospitals, with the hope of preventing some of the 35,000 deaths there are every year in the UK as a result of the disease.
