Loneliness: 'Take friendships more seriously'

A comedian is calling for people to interact with their friends face to face in order to combat the effects of loneliness caused by social media.

Carys Eleri, from Cardiff, organised a one-woman show about her experiences of isolation.

She said she was in a "rage" that she had allowed herself to become lonely as a result of technology, which caused her to "feel connected when I really wasn't".

She added people need to "take responsibility" for the friendships to stop people becoming "less and less connected".
