Naked calendar highlights cancer
Women in the calendar
The calendars will be sold to raise money for charity
A group of women from Somerset, billed as the Bottom Line, have posed naked in a calendar to highlight breast cancer.

Meanwhile, Yeovil District Hospital has been chosen as one of only 20 hospitals nationwide to participate in a new study to help prevent breast cancer.

A total of 30 women in the area will be given a new drug in the study, and the hospital is looking for participants.

Woman must be post-menopausal, and have a family history of breast cancer.

Sue Bulley, clinical trials manager at Yeovil Hospital, said: "The aim of the trial is to save lives: to prevent women developing breast cancer.

In a bid to raise money for breast cancer charities, the calendars will go on sale on Friday.
