Bereaved husband sets up blog to help other widowers

Two months ago, Benjamin Brooks-Dutton was walking along the pavement with his family when a car came towards them.

He managed to push his son's pram out of the path of the car, saving his life, but it struck and killed his wife, Desreen.

Mr Dutton contacted a bereavement charity but found that very few men come forward in his situation, and support systems are often aimed at women.

He spoke to BBC Breakfast about the blog he has set up, and is appealing to other widowers to help each other.
