Sussex is the 4th loneliest place for elderly says charity

Sussex is the the 4th loneliest place in the country for older people, according to The Silver Line, a national helpline for the older generation.

In December the charity saw its busiest month ever, with over 47,000 people getting in touch - a 10% rise on the previous year.

95 year old Jack King from Eastbourne contacted them after he lost his wife... he's never looked back.

Lola Lawal has the story.
