Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood has revealed he had a lung cancer scare earlier this year, but is in remission after surgery.

Wood refused chemotherapy treatment because, in his words, “this hair is going nowhere”.

A routine health check three months ago revealed, again in Wood’s words, “a supernova on my left lung”, and he is now urging people to get checked regularly.
