The number of people dying of cancer in the southwest is down almost a quarter.

That is for things like breast, lung, prostate and bowel cancer.

The Royal Cornwall is one of the top places in the country for clinical trials getting patients cutting edge treatments.

Doctor Kat Arney from Cancer Research UK tells us other types of the disease are tougher to tackle: "More than half of all people diagnosed with cancer will survive for at least ten years. We know that's not good enough and we want to see at least three quarters of people surviving within twenty years so we've still a lot of work to do but we feel like we're starting to get there.

"The really key thing is to be aware of your body, know what's normal for you and if anything changes. We can't reel off a whole list of systems for every strange type of cancer that people should be aware of. But the key thing is that if it's not normal for you - get along to the doctor."
