Manchester shoppers' lung scans 'saved lives'

Thousands of lives across the UK could be saved after a scheme in which smokers received CT scans in shopping centres, a cancer charity says.

There was a fourfold increase in the diagnosis of potentially curable cancers in the Manchester pilot, Macmillan Cancer Support said.

Early diagnosis of lung cancer in "stages one or two" is seen as crucial for a patient's survival.

Consultant Dr Phil Barber said: "We believe we have saved lives."
