Ed Miliband in Cambridge


After a quick outbreak of #milifandom as Ed arrived at Cambridge station, the Labour leader Ed Miliband, Shadow Health Secretary Andy Burnham and Daniel Zeichner visited Addenbrooke's.

Mr Miliband announced that more cancer testing will be carried out by family doctors under a £150 million a year plan.

Outdated radiotherapy machines will also be replaced in English treatment centres under proposals that would come into force next year.

The cash will also be used to fund Labour's pledge for a guaranteed maximum one-week wait for cancer test results by 2020.
