Inmates record charity song for brain cancer campaign

A charity single recorded by prison inmates will be released tomorrow to raise money for a campaign to highlight the symptoms of brain tumours.

David Langton-Gilks, a 16-year-old boy from Dorset, died following a five year battle with cancer.

His family joined the HeadSmart campaign to make parents aware of the symptoms of brain cancer, which include vomiting, headaches and abnormal eye movements.

The song was recorded at Guys Marsh Prison, where David Langton-Gilks' father works as a music teacher.

Matthew Hill reports.
