Cancer patients benefit from revolutionary treatment

Prostate cancer patients in Lincolnshire are benefiting from quicker and more convenient treatment thanks to better use of radiotherapy.

Lincoln County Hospital entered 155 patients into a trial over the last 10 years, giving them slightly higher doses of radiotherapy, but over a shorter period of time.

The research has now been recognised nationally in the medical journal The Lancet Oncology, which said that the “hard and fast treatment” worked just as well as traditional methods, causing no more side-effects.

Consultants at Lincoln County Hospital now prescribe this treatment regime for all eligible patients.

The force says the order will prevent suspects from attending future matches in the UK and abroad. 

Four people have been charged with offences including assault, affray and public order offences after officers were hurt when "missiles" were thrown towards them.

Quite frankly this sort of behaviour is not acceptable and will not be tolerated.

Supt David Hall, match commander at Humberside police said: "Football matches should be friendly sporting events that families can attend and enjoy. 

We will not allow the minority of people to spoil such occasions and will continue to work with the football clubs in our area to tackle the thugs intent on committing violence and disruption."
