ISLE of Wight MP Bob Seely has thrown his support behind a campaign which calls for skin mole testing to be compulsory.

In just seven days, more than 11,000 people have signed a petition calling for ‘Zoe’s Law’, started by Zoe Panayi’s family after the 26-year-old mother-of-two died last month of melanoma skin cancer.

Zoe’s mother, Eileen Punter, wrote to Bob explaining the purpose of the petition was to change the law to make the testing of all moles removed ­regulated and mandatory.

This includes those removed for cosmetic reasons.

Mr Seely told Eileen he would join the campaign, taking it to the highest place he could ­— the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock.

He said: “I encourage everyone to sign the petition ­— we need to get the law changed to try to prevent others from going through the pain Zoe and her family have had to endure.

“I will do all I can to support the family and ensure their voices are heard in Westminster.”

Zoe died at the end of May after contracting skin cancer which spread through her body.
