Watch: Are young people with eating disorders getting the help they need

First, are doctors doing enough to help the children and teenagers who go to them, desperate for help with eating disorders?

Tonight, we hear from a young woman from Liverpool who feels seriously let down by the system.

Chantelle Mason says at first she tried to hide the signs of her disorder.

But when she eventually went to the doctors, she feels she didn't get the help she needed.

Research published today suggests she's not alone, although the body that represents GPs is tonight highlighting what it says is a lack of community support services.

Everton 'legend' Alex Young has died

Everton legend Alex Young has passed away peacefully at his home in Edinburgh.

He was idolised throughout the '60s and fans continued to pay homage on his visits back to Merseyside after his retirement.

Son Alex added:

He loved Everton and he loved being back at Goodison Park. He always said it was like going to church.
