Caroline Boulton, 56, from Greater Manchester has stage-four breast cancer and faced delays at every stage of her treatment. But could the growth have been acted on more quickly? Leading oncologist Professor Patricia Price says: "This is the worst cancer crisis of her lifetime."

Produced by Sean Clare, Charlotte Rowles and Emily O’Sullivan.
