Norwich North MP Chloe Smith is urging others to check for lumps and seek medical attention straight away after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

She said she will begin treatment soon.

Conservative MP Ms Smith, who is a mother of two, made the announcement on Twitter.

She said: “I aim to carry on as normally, positively and openly as possible – but obviously will need privacy and support at times.

“My office and I will continue to serve constituents as usual.
