Hammer blow turns to joy for Trentham athlete

Former athlete Craig Ellams, from Trentham, Stoke-on-Trent, thought nothing could come close to the despair of missing out on the Commonwealth Games, but a diagnosis of testicular cancer left him and his wife lost for words.

He thought he would never have children.

Five years on, Mr Ellams is celebrating receiving the all-clear from cancer in the same week as his daughter Connie's third birthday.
