Londoner inspires campaign to raise awareness of male suicide

A campaign to raise awareness of suicide - the biggest killer of men aged under 45 - has been launched in the capital this week. Inspired by the tragic case of Jesh Ahmed, who took his own life earlier this year, a foundation set up in memory of the north Londoner is urging men to grow sideburns this month in a bid to raise money and awareness of the issue. The campaign's co-founder, Poss Apostolou has been speaking to London Live News about the loss of his friend.
