A TELEVISION presenter helped plant 1000 tulips in aid of an Oxford cancer charity at Cotswold Wildlife Park.

The bulbs were planted for Urology Cancer Research and Education (UCARE), with the help of James Alexander Sinclair, who has appeared on BBC Gardeners World.

He was joined by consultant urological surgeon and UCARE trustee, Professor David Cranston, and members of a patient kidney cancer group.

Also planting the bulbs was Keith Jameson, who had part of his left kidney removed at the Churchill Hospital in 2016 and was treated by Professor Cranston.

The tulips are available to buy, with the money raising awareness and funds for research.

Urological cancers, those of the kidney, prostate, bladder and testicles represent 20 per cent of all new cancers diagnosed each year.
