Doctors in Hull say they'll be able to diagnose cancer

:00:12.:00:17.

patients earlier, thanks to a ?5 million investment.

:00:18.:00:19.

The money - which has been awarded to the Hull York Medical School -

:00:20.:00:22.

will be used to find out why so many people don't see their doctor,

:00:23.:00:26.

until their cancer reaches a late stage.

:00:27.:00:27.

In February 2015 Harry received some terrifying news.

:00:28.:00:33.

I thought I had a chest infection and the X-ray

:00:34.:00:36.

And the upper part of the long had to

:00:37.:00:41.

come out and then I had to go through a chemotherapy regime.

:00:42.:00:44.

His lung cancer was caught early enough to

:00:45.:00:52.

But Harry's specialist says too many people

:00:53.:00:56.

We need them to come forward earlier.

:00:57.:00:59.

If they come from earlier there's quite a high

:01:00.:01:02.

It is the same as some of the more common other cancers

:01:03.:01:07.

The problem is worse in deprived areas.

:01:08.:01:10.

In Hull the number of people who die from lung cancer is well

:01:11.:01:14.

Last year nearly half of lung cancer

:01:15.:01:22.

patients didn't get diagnosed until the

:01:23.:01:23.

disease was at its most advanced stage.

:01:24.:01:25.

There is evidence that British people like to not bother

:01:26.:01:29.

They are quite protective of the health service, so

:01:30.:01:33.

I think we need to try and get a different

:01:34.:01:35.

narrative around that and

:01:36.:01:36.

really reassure people that what doctors want is to see them

:01:37.:01:39.

A new investment of around ?5 million from

:01:40.:01:47.

Yorkshire Cancer research is helping to change that.

:01:48.:01:49.

Some of this money will pay for 11 new researchers

:01:50.:01:51.

based at the medical building here at Hull University.

:01:52.:02:00.

But it is also hoped it will be two more national

:02:01.:02:03.

And part of the money will go on trying to get people with

:02:04.:02:07.

cancer symptoms to the doctor earlier and for anyone unsure at

:02:08.:02:10.

some advice from someone who has seen it all before.

:02:11.:02:13.

Cancer doesn't knock on the door and say I'm creeping up on

:02:14.:02:16.

And if you have a cough or anything out of the

:02:17.:02:22.

ordinary, if you feel tired, go see your doctor.

:02:23.:02:24.

Cancer survivor Harry Good, ending that report by Matthew Bone.

:02:25.:02:30.

The A16 near Spalding was closed for a large part of the morning

:02:31.:02:33.

after a serious crash involving a car and a lorry.

:02:34.:02:35.

It happened between the Springfield Roundabout and West Marsh Road.

:02:36.:02:38.

An air ambulance was called into action.

:02:39.:02:40.

A campaigner from Lincolnshire is calling for more research

:02:41.:02:42.

into brain tumours - amid claims the disease isn't

:02:43.:02:44.

getting as much funding as other types of cancer.

:02:45.:02:47.

Fiona Goldsby from Nocton was diagnosed with a brain tumour

:02:48.:02:49.

in 2008 and is still battling the condition.

:02:50.:02:51.

Figures reveal it kills more people under 40

:02:52.:02:53.

than any other type of cancer, but only receives 1% of the funding.

:02:54.:03:00.

Then these to be more research into treatment. There are a lot of

:03:01.:03:05.

treatments in the pipeline and we need to speed them up. Sadly a lot

:03:06.:03:11.

of us will not be around for years down the line.

:03:12.:03:14.

Fiona's story will be discussed on Sunday Politics tomorrow morning.

:03:15.:03:16.

That's from 11 on BBC One, where the guests include Beverley

:03:17.:03:19.

It's a big congratulations to Cleethorpes Town

:03:20.:03:23.

These were the scenes at the ground in Grimsby a short

:03:24.:03:27.

time ago, after they beat Bromsgrove Sporting

:03:28.:03:29.

The final score was a goal to nil - 2-1 on aggregate.

:03:30.:03:36.

Lincoln City missed out on another Wembley final,

:03:37.:03:40.

losing to York City in their FA Trophy semifinal through

:03:41.:03:42.

Hull City lost 4-0 to Everton and stay two

:03:43.:03:52.

Oxford beat Scunthorpe United by two goals to one.

:03:53.:03:55.

Grimsby Town drew one all against Crawley.

:03:56.:03:59.

And a bad afternoon as well for North Ferriby United.

:04:00.:04:01.

but that didn't stop more than 50 people taking part in a conga

:04:02.:04:16.

The line went around Queen Victoria Square,

:04:17.:04:21.

involving City of Culture volunteers and members of the public.

:04:22.:04:23.

It was organised as part of the Hull 2017 team's weekly challenge.

:04:24.:04:26.

Let's see what else the weather's got in store for us -

:04:27.:04:29.

here's Owain Wyn Evans with your forecast.

:04:30.:04:35.

Overnight we see this band of rain passed through, making

:04:36.:04:37.

And lows of 10 Celsius. Feeling a bit blustery overnight but mostly

:04:38.:04:54.

dry. Still very blustery. If other eye breaks of rain are likely on

:04:55.:04:57.

Monday but temperatures on Tuesday and Wednesday take a tumble.

:04:58.:05:02.

Goodbye, we're back tomorrow evening at the same time of ten to six.

:05:03.:05:08.
