Volunteers begin Runcorn cancer blood test trial

A volunteer in Runcorn says he was keen to take part in a cancer blood test trial after losing family members to the disease.

Tens of thousands of volunteers are being recruited for the trial, which has been described as potentially "game-changing".

It is hoped the Galleri test can detect more than 50 types of cancer before symptoms appear.

Stuart Devereux said it seemed like "a good opportunity to actually become involved in something".
