The scanner will be lifted into position by a heavy-duty crane which Morrisons has offered to host in its car park.

Once on site, engineers will complete the final installation and hand over the scanner to the Peterborough And Stamford Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust at the end of January.

Around 8,000 patients a year are expected to benefit once the scanner is fully functional.
