Freya Barlow Trust launched with skydive

A medical student diagnosed with terminal cancer has launched her charity trust fund by watching a skydive.

Freya Barlow, who has twice previously beaten leukaemia, was told earlier this month her condition is now terminal.

She has since left her studies in Plymouth to spend time with her family at home in Norfolk.

The 22-year-old was unable to jump herself, but was on site in Perranporth, Cornwall, to offer support on Friday.

She hopes the Freya Barlow Trust will help other young people living with the disease.
