    More than a quarter (27.3%) of women aged 60 to 64 have failed to attend cervical screening tests - the lowest level since 1997, Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust has said. The charity said it is particularly "worried" about the low uptake of older women attending screenings as the most recent figures show that cervical cancer incidence in this age group has increased by 29% in just one year.
