Podcast: Gravesend mum, 35, dies just months after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer

October 12, 2021

A mum from Gravesend has died just months after being diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer.

Nicola Biddiscombe was told she had the disease while pregnant with her third child.

Her family had been raising money in the hope she could get a potentially life-extending drug that is only available in America.

Also in today's podcast, a no-swim zone remains in place at 14 beaches in Thanet after waste water leaked into the sea.

There are calls for Southern Water to do more.

A project is under way to try and get children fit again after the pandemic.

It's thought only half of youngsters in the county are doing the recommended 60 minutes of exercise they need every day.

Skier Millie Knight has been to a school to learn about the new scheme.

And in sport, former Gravesend schoolboy Fikayo Tomori could be in the line-up for England tonight as they take on Hungary in a World Cup qualifier.
