My partner died saving our son

Award-winning Guardian journalist Decca Aitkenhead was on holiday in Jamaica with her partner and two sons in 2014 when tragedy struck and her life changed forever.

Tony, a youth worker, tragically drowned while rescuing four-year-old Jake from a riptide.

In her first TV interview ahead of the release of her new memoir All At Sea, Decca shares her harrowing story.

"On the one hand your conscious mind knows this is happening because you're seeing it in front of your eyes, but there's a huge part of the brain that refuses to accept it," Decca told Amanda.

She also reveals how the family were hit by further heartbreak last year when she discovered a lump just days after the first anniversary of Tony's burial and was diagnosed with breast cancer.

"I feel what we have been through has been so testing and so difficult, that it's hard to believe things are going to get better. So I think whatever comes next has to be easier than what we've already been through," Decca added.

All At Sea is available to buy now.
