Study into dogs' ability to sniff out breast cancer

Research is being carried out in Buckinghamshire to see if dogs can detect breast cancer.

Abound 55,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer each year in the UK, and just under 12,000 die.

If the study is successful it could mean a breath test being developed. Catching the disease early will significantly improve recovery rates.
