A mum whose brain tumour went undiagnosed for two years is celebrating her recovery by running the London Marathon. 

Becky Scott-Yates first began noticing symptoms such as her face going numb and problems with her hearing and balance after having the antibiotics for tonsillitis in 2008.

She was told the side effects from the allergic reaction could last up to six months but they continued and she frequently returned to the doctors.

Two years later an MRI scan at Colchester General Hospital revealed a brain tumour the size of a golf ball. 

See today's Gazette to read the full feature on her road to recovery with the help of her friends and family.
