Politics: Get down with Brown

Gordon Brown, who today takes over from Tony Blair as Prime Minister, showed his support for the Teenage Cancer Trust earlier this month by hosting a reception for patients and staff at 11 Downing Street, the residence he inhabited during his 10 years as Chancellor of the Exchequer. The Teenage Cancer Trust operates units in NHS hospitals that provide specialist care for teenagers and young adults with cancer, leukaemia and Hodgkin's disease. Simon Davies, chief executive of the trust, said: "Cancer services for young people have come a long way, but there is still much work to be done." Brown is pictured here with former cancer patient Prince Aidoo.
