Man's run of hope after brother's suicide

A man from West Cumbria is running more than 100 miles in memory of his brother who took his own life after struggling with depression.

Andrew Robinson wants to raise money for Survivors of Bereavement by Suicide (SOBS), the charity that helped him recover from the trauma of his brother's death.

Mr Robinson is running coast to coast from Seaton Carew in the North East to Whitehaven Harbour.

He will complete the 115 miles challenge in just three days and hopes to raise money as well as awareness of the help that's available.
