A man has been reunited with the passer by who talked him out of jumping off a bridge in 2008.

Jonny Benjamin, 26, found good Samaritan, Neil Laybourn, 31, after his Twitter campaign to find him went viral.

Mr Benjamin told BBC Radio 5 live's Breakfast: "This stranger just coming up to me and saying 'you can do it mate, you can overcome anything' - that was the turning point for me."

Also speaking with the programme, Mr Labourn, said "I just kept asking him questions... and let him know that if he wanted to talk about it, I was there."
