Landmarks turn pink for charity

Famous London landmarks, including Buckingham Palace, Nelson's Column and the Tower of London have turned pink in support of the UK's leading breast cancer research charity.

The event marks the launch of the charity Breast Cancer Campaign's action month which is aiming to raise awareness about the effects of the disease this October.

Baroness Delyth Morgan, Breast Cancer Campaign's chief executive, said: "Twelve thousand women still die from breast cancer every year in the UK. Millions more - survivors, their friends and families - are living with its impact every single day."

Throughout October the charity is hoping that people will be encouraged to help: from wearing it, buying it, turning it or painting it pink. "Through to encouraging friends and family to be more aware of the signs and symptoms - every action will help move us closer to curing the disease."
