Oesophageal cancer survivor: 'I have to graze all day'

An oesophageal cancer survivor has described how the radical surgery he undertook has impacted on his life.

Oesophageal cancer is the ninth most common cancer in Britain, according to figures from Cancer Research UK, and rates have doubled among men.

Larry Rees is cured after having his food pipe and part of his stomach removed following the diagnosis four years ago.

He said three course meals were now a thing of the past and he ''grazes'' all day instead.
