A diabetes awareness event will be held at an Edgware shopping centre later this month.

Specialists from charity Silver Star will be available to speak to shoppers and offer free tests at The Broadwalk shopping centre in Station Road.

The tests can determine whether people are at risk of Type 2 diabetes.

Almost 17,000 people in the Barnet area suffer with the disease, which is caused by too much glucose in the blood.

The awareness event will take place on Saturday, October 19 between 10am and 4.30pm.
