A young footballer from West Yorkshire has opened up about his battles with addiction and depression in the hope of helping others experiencing similar problems.

George Green was tipped for the very top when he left Bradford City to sign for Premier League giants Everton in 2011, but his career stalled after spending his earnings on alcohol and drugs.

Now George is rebuilding his career in the non-league and at just 22 hopes to be given a second chance in the game he loves. Chris Dawkes reports.
