A local MP has supported calls for a plan and spending needed on radiotherapy.

The MP says backing the campaign in their calls to Government to boost cancer treatment services.

Commenting, Greg said, "At the event, a delegation of cancer professionals and campaigners, alongside frontline radiotherapy workforce and patients, unveiled new analysis of recent cancer waiting times across the UK, to show the extent of the cancer crisis.

"I was also delighted to meet Bryan Robson OBE, former Man Utd and England Captain, who said he owed his live to radiotherapy as part of his cancer treatment.
