A PORTSMOUTH landmark will light up to raise awareness of pancreatic cancer.

Tomorrow, the Spinnaker Tower will be illuminated in purple for the Purple Lights For Hope campaign.

The campaign offers an opportunity for people to celebrate the lives of those who have been diagnosed with the disease and those whose lives it has already taken.

Portsmouth resident Alison Humberstone’s husband died of pancreatic cancer.

She said: ‘Anything that can help others going through this pain is worth supporting.

‘By lighting up the Spinnaker Tower in purple we are helping to put a spotlight on pancreatic cancer and to highlight a disease that many people still know so very little about.’
