Cancer boy Connah Broom starts high school in Prestatyn

A boy diagnosed with a rare form of childhood cancer in 2006 is taking a step on the road to recovery by starting secondary school in Denbighshire.

Connah Broom had 11 tumours, and chemotherapy had little effect but he received a treatment in Mexico called photodynamic therapy.

His grandmother Debbie Broom told Sarah Easedale his recovery meant he was able to enjoy football, dancing, gymnastics and wall climbing.

Connah, 11, who starts school in Prestatyn, is also planning to publish his own book next month to help other children with cancer.
