Sun, sea and skin cancer: Tony's story

The number of people in Wales developing the most serious form of skin cancer has risen dramatically, a cancer charity is warning.

According to a study by Cancer Research UK, the rates of people diagnosed with malignant melanoma have more than quadrupled in Wales over the last 40 years.

One of those who discovered he had a form of the disease a decade ago is Tony Fitzgerald, from Swansea.

He told BBC Radio Wales' Good Morning Wales about the diagnosis - and why he believed he had developed skin cancer.
