Bereaved Eastbourne parents set up charity

A couple from Eastbourne say the lack of support available to them after their 17-year-old daughter died suddenly has inspired them to set up a charity to help other grieving parents.

Megan Brooks, who had been suffering from heart problems, died in 2011 but her parents Jane and Fraser found little in the way of help or counselling for families like them.

The charity they set up, You Raise Me Up, has now opened a support centre in Polegate, East Sussex.

South East Today's Ian Palmer spoke to Jane Brooks and counsellor Lauren Henty.
