A paramedic who suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is calling for more mental health support for emergency crews.
Dan Farnworth from Blackpool was diagnosed with the condition after involvement with a particularly disturbing child abuse case. The child later died.

Dan's story caught the attention of the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge and Prince Harry at a recent World Mental Health Event. See Dan tell his story below:
The World Museum in Liverpool is launching an exhibition on Egyptian animal mummies.

Police are continuing to search for a missing man who was last seen more than eight years ago.
Jordan Anthony Ratcliffe who was 16-years-old when he was reported missing, will be turning 25 today.
There's a £20,000 reward for information leading to his whereabouts.
Jordan is originally from the Moston area and was last seen on 31 August 2008, after he was dropped off in Manchester.
In 2014, officers received intelligence that Jordan may have been seen in the Portsmouth area, although there have been no further sightings. Police have released pictures of how they believe Jordan may look now, in the hope someone may have seen him.
An award has been made in memory of a little girl from Stockport who died at a nursery.
Millie Thompson choked on food in 2012.
Millie's Trust was set up in her name to ensure standards of first aid care for nursery staff.
Elm Cottage Nursery in Cheadle Hulme received its accreditation in a special ceremony.
It is one of ten to achieve the gold standard in paediatric first aid in early years settings across the UK.
The new accreditation is the result of an ongoing campaign by Joanne and Dan Thompson, Millie's parents, who set up Millie's Trust after her death.
