A retired firefighter who was awarded an MBE has blasted the NHS after being refused potentially life-saving drugs - because he has been free from cancer for TOO LONG.

Mick Smith, 59, was diagnosed with Chronic Lympocytic Leukemia and underwent four months of gruelling chemotherapy in 2010.

The former firefighter and magistrate went into remission but earlier this year was rushed back to hospital after falling ill and blood tests confirmed the cancer had returned.
