Charity finds cancer patients affected by debt

Cancer patients are coming under increasing financial pressure, with some having to cut back on food because money is so tight.

According to Macmillan Cancer Support one in six patients is hit by increased costs and lost income.

The charity says changes to the benefits system could leave some people more than £90 a week worse off.
