A breast cancer roadshow is coming to Hounslow next week to offer potentially life-saving advice about checking for signs of the disease.

The mobile service will be in Bell Square, at the western end of Hounslow High Street, on Thursday (October 15) and Friday (October 16), from 10am-4pm.

Visitors can learn about spotting the early warning signs of the disease, which affects around 42,000 people a year in England.

The bus, which is touring the country to raise awareness, is jointly funded by Breast Cancer Care and The Football Association.

Davinia Green, the charity's head of breast awareness and early detection, said: "Anyone can be at risk of breast cancer, no matter what their age, gender or ethnicity, so it's really important that people are aware of any unusual changes in their breasts, and act quickly if they are worried about anything.

"People can visit our bus to learn more about breast awareness and find out more about the signs and symptoms. All information and support is free and confidential, and there’s no need to make an appointment."
