A mobile chemotherapy unit for cancer patients, thought to be the biggest in the world, is set to be built.

Charity Tenovus has received funding of 750,000 towards the building and initial running costs.

When completed, it will have space for seven patients at a time and deliver more than 125,000 treatments during its lifetime.

The unit will be the charity's third and will be 60% bigger than the first mobile chemotherapy unit it launched.

Its original unit, designed to offer treatment away from hospital, was unveiled in 2009 and cost 300,000.
