A BRAVE 15-year-old has shaved off her hair for Cancer Research UK, and donated her locks to help young children undergoing cancer treatment.

Pilton Community College pupil Tori Evans decided to have her hair cut off on Wednesday in support of her father and stepfather who have both undergone cancer treatment.

Proud dad David Evans, who was diagnosed with bowel cancer in 2011, looked on as his daughter's hair was chopped off at Kismet Hair and Barbering in Barnstaple.

He said: "I actually felt quite emotional and am very proud of her."

Tori has raised more than £600 so far and donated her hair to the Little Princess Trust.

She said: "I was more excited than nervous; I wanted to do it to support my Dad and stepdad."

Barber Dan Squires also shaved the Cancer Research UK ribbon into the back of Tori's hair.
