A schoolboy who is fighting cancer for the second time has been told he is clear of cancer cells.

Laughlin 'Lockey' Whiteley, seven, has been in isolation at Great Ormond Street Hospital for six weeks but could be home in a fortnight.

Laughlin, of Mildmay Road, Burnham, was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia last November, having previously fought off a malignant brain tumour.
