County Hall has turned purple for National Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.

Only 42 people in the North West survived the disease during 2013.

CEO of the cancer charity Ali Stunt said: “Each year we are overwhelmed by the huge numbers of supporters who embrace the colour purple to raise awareness.”

Many landmarks are lighting up for the charity and Lancashire County Council once again decided to get involved.

Leader of the county council Jennifer Mein said: “As people walk past County Hall while it’s lit up, I hope that they’ll be reminded about this as they see the purple lights. I’m pleased the county council is able to do its bit to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer.”

You can find out more about the battle against pancreatic cancer on the charity website.
