A support group for people with pancreatic cancer and their families has been set up by a woman who has been battling the illness.

Karen Stead, from Outwood, was diagnosed with the illness four years ago, and hopes pancreatic cancer sufferers can find advice and support from each other at the group.

Mrs Stead, who is a patient at St James Infirmary, Leeds, is also raising awareness of the symptoms of the disease, which are notoriously hard to diagnose.
