Cornwall and Devon get set to March on Cancer.

The fundraiser is to remember those who have died and those who are fighting.

Fifteen hundred people across the Duchy and Devon are expected to descend upon Plymouth for the event.

Sarah Pope is from Cancer Research UK: "Always very, very inspiring and emotive to see these people with their stories. But you're not alone. Everybody knows someone who's been affected by cancer. One in three of us gets cancer. 84 people are diagnosed every day in the south west in the south west with cancer.

"We'll be marching through the streets chanting and making our voices heard that 'Cancer - you're going down'. Together we can all beat cancer, not just the scientists, but everybody can play their part in beating cancer."
