Parents of son who died from overdose reach out to dealer

The parents of a teenager who died after taking ecstasy are taking the extraordinary step of reaching out to the dealer who sold him the drug. 

16-year-old Daniel Spargo-Mabbs took a lethal dose of MDMA at a party last year. 

The man who supplied the drug is now behind bars, but Daniel's family say they want to help him once he gets out of prison and educate others about the dangers of substance abuse. 

London Live’s Alison Earle went to meet them.
