A Weymouth dentist is travelling a hundred miles to raise awareness of mouth cancer.

Paul Kelly and his parter, Danielle Wootton are taking part in the Two Moors Way- trekking across Exmoor and Dartmoor and finishing in Ivybridge.

Mouth cancer rates are continuing to rise. It's not one of the more common forms of cancer it has a high morbidity rate.

Paul says this is mainly down to people failing to get their symptoms checked out in time.

He's calling on people to go and see their dentist or doctor if they have lingering mouth ulcers or any unusual swelling or pain in their mouth.
