More than 2,000 people were helped last year by a mobile roadshow which advised about cancer.

Macmillan Cancer Support answered questions from 2,219 people in Norfolk during a tour of the county last year.

The roadshow was provided by a team of cancer specialists who travelled aboard buses which parked across towns and villages.

Michelle Smith, Macmillan's senior lead cancer information specialist for the mobile service, said: '2016 was an amazing year - our team reached thousands of people on our big green buses.

'We offer a confidential drop-in service where visitors can step onto the bus and ask any question they have about cancer. We visited town centres, county shows, workplaces, football stadiums, and, last year, even parked up at Cromer Carnival for the day. This year we're determined to provide even more people in Norfolk with cancer information and support.'
