MORE than £1,300 has been raised to support a police cadet with cancer.

Essex Police launched an online fundraising page for 15-year-old cadet Ryan Twinn who was diagnosed with malignant germ cell tumours before Christmas.

Ryan has been a Harwich-based police cadet for nearly two years.

When officers heard Ryan had cancer they decided to set up a fundraising page to show their support.

Since the page launched on January 31, more than £1,300 has been raised by 32 donors.

Police are also holding a fundraising quiz on February 28 at the Park Pavilion, in Barrack Lane, Harwich.
