Tessa Jowell wearing pioneering £240,000-a-year skull cap to treat her brain cancer

Dame Tessa Jowell has revealed she is wearing a £240,000-a-year skull cap which fires electrical pulses into her brain to treat her cancer. The Labour peer and former Culture Secretary, who was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumour last year, said she was wearing the pioneering device when she made her passionate speech about her condition in the House of Lords in January.
