Town crier back on shouting duties despite being told he would never talk again

A top town crier diagnosed with throat cancer is back on shouting duties – despite being told he would never talk again. Clive O’Shaughnessy, 61, thought his days as a crier were over when he was diagnosed with cancer in his neck and doctors discovered a tumour on his tongue. But after six weeks of total silence and radiotherapy and chemotherapy treatment, he stunned medical staff by slowly regaining his sound.
