A 90-tonne piece of cancer-fighting equipment that will improve the lives of hundreds of cancer patients every year has been carefully lowered into place in its new home.
The size of a family car and weighing the same as seven London buses, the cyclotron is described as the “beating heart” of the new proton beam therapy centre at University College London Hospital (UCLH).
Having travelled 400 miles from Germany via the Netherlands, the machine was lowered into a specially-constructed vault by a crane at the central London site on Tuesday afternoon – a key milestone in the construction of the 11-storey facility.
