BBC Midlands Today's Laura May McMullan in skin cancer campaign

A BBC Midlands Today reporter has admitted to being a "tanning addict", regularly using sunbeds and sunbathing in her desire to be tanned.

But when Laura May McMullan developed skin cancer, she said she realised she had put her life in danger.

Ms McMullan, from Staffordshire, said it was the "most frightening time" of her life and is now trying to raise awareness about the condition and caring for your skin.

Inside Out, featuring Laura's story, is available on BBC iPlayer.
