The warning comes in the same week cervical cancer prevention week comes to a close, January 24 and 30, in a bid to increase awareness of cervical cancer and how to prevent it.

Clinics are being run in Exmouth to protect girls from the disease.

The clinics are open to all girls between the age of 12 and 18 who have yet to begin or complete their HPV vaccination course.

All clinics are by appointment only and to book an appointment or for further advice, contact NHS Devon's immunisation team on (01392) 208 469.

Anyone unable to make the clinic dates is urged to contact the team on (01392) 208 469 to discuss alternative arrangements.
