A powerful new art installation was unveiled at ITV's studios on Southbank today to raise awareness of male suicide.

The sculptures, by American artist Mark Jenkins, represent the 84 men who take their own lives every week in the UK.

The charity Calm says the sculptures were made in collaboration with bereaved families. They will stay there all week.

As I was driving up to the building this morning to come to work, just looking up at our tower - it's such a dominating site on the South Bank - to see that at the top, it's just incredibly powerful.
