Q Radio has been told Northern Ireland desperately needs a Suicide Prevention Strategy.

Foyle MLA, Mark H Durkan says there is one, but it's "gathering dust" as there is no powersharing executive at Stormont to implement it.

He's been speaking to us after his sister, Gay took her own life 7 years ago.

The SDLP representative says: "Many many families across Derry and beyond have been and are being affected by suicide".

He added that, "families shouldn't have to suffer like this and we have to do everything to make sure that they don't".
