If you've been affected by this story help is available

Reach Out Online Chat

Our team provides free, confidential advice on a range of issues, including drug or alcohol worries and mental health – whether they affect you directly or a friend or relative. And if we don’t have the answers to all of your questions, we will be able to signpost you to somebody who will.

Our online chat service is currently available between 9am and 3pm Monday-Friday (excluding Bank Holidays).

Please note: Reach Out is not a crisis service. If you are in an urgent situation or emergency, such as a suspected overdose, call 999.
