A cancer support bus is coming to Norfolk to provide information and to give members of the public a chance to ask specialists any questions they have surrounding cancer.

The Macmillan Cancer Support's mobile service will be coming to the region between Tuesday, May 16 and Friday, May 19.

The bus will be stopping off in Great Yarmouth first on May 16 at Market Square before moving onto Norwich, Haymarket on May 17, Wymondham Market Place on May 18 before ending it's journey at Swaffham Market Place on May 19.

With summer on the way, the bus team will be providing advice and information about staying safe in the sun and skin cancer.

Macmillan information and support specialist Wendy Marchant said: 'Skin cancer, if caught early, is very treatable and actually has one of the highest survival rates of all cancers. Being sun aware is key.'
