The Prime Minister's wife is the new patron of a leading breast cancer charity, it was announced last night. Cherie Booth (pictured) was asked to become patron of Breast Cancer Care after she expressed a personal interest in the work of the charity which supports women with the disease and their families.

Accepting the new role, Ms Booth described how breast cancer has affected her own family. "I have experience of seeing a loved one die of breast cancer, so I know the effect it can have on the woman who is suffering from it and her family," she said
