A music event in support of a young man battling a rare form of bone cancer takes place in Norwich weekend.

Billy Clayton, who lives in Norwich, was just 18 when he was diagnosed with Ewings Sarcoma in 2015.

Since then, he has endured 27 months of intensive chemotherapy, two major surgeries and ten weeks of daily radiotherapy.

Despite the treatment, the cancer has now spread to his lungs.

A fundraising event is being held at The Brickmakers pub on Sprowston Road in Norwich on Saturday, December 9, to support him.
