I've been filming a really important story in Doncaster which highlights a wider problem. The charity b:Friend has estimated around one in four older people are chronically lonely, where someone feels lonely all or most of the time. I really enjoyed meeting Alan and Julia...

Since my story was broadcast I'm really pleased to report that more than 100 people have contacted the charity to volunteers as befrienders - showing that by highlighting issues in our society, us journalists can help make a difference.

  1. very interesting - I am not surprised loneliness causes all sorts of health problems. Great way to go about combatting this - and a good report - clear and fairly comprehensive in a short space of time
