Ex-F1 Driver Derek Warwick describes tumour discovery

A former Formula 1 racing driver has described the moment a tumour was discovered in his bowel, in a bid to encourage people to attend free screenings.

Derek Warwick, who raced in the 1980s and now lives in Jersey, said he put off going to a free bowel screening test for about six months after being offered one.

The 63-year-old had no symptoms, but said the delay meant a "great big tumour" had spread to his lymph nodes.

Islanders aged 60 years and over have been offered free tests since 2013.
