Five-year-old April Abbey had her long locks snipped by mobile hairdresser Nicky Coleman.

They have been sent to the charity, which turns hair into wigs for children who suffer hair loss because of cancer treatment.

April’s mum Hayley said: “She was quite nervous to start with.

“I thought she was going to cry when she looked in the mirror, but actually she was really happy with it.
