A new health centre for diagnostic testing in Plymouth has been given the go-ahead.

The Community Diagnostic Centre in the city's West End is one of eight to be announced across the country.

Plymouth Labour said it would "not be as large" as the original 41.5m West End Health Hub in Stonehouse.

But it said it hoped the centre including MRI, CT, X-Ray and lung cancer screening, could be up and running by September.

Councillor Mark Lowry, cabinet member for finance, said: "On the first day of our administration we submitted our application for this project and from that moment we have worked non-stop to get this project back on track."
