Sussex woman's plea after 'tortured' brother's suicide

The sister of a Sussex man who committed suicide because of the way he thought he looked wants greater awareness of his medical condition.

Amanda Cunningham, from Plumpton Green, says she does not want any more lives to be lost because of a little-understood illness that gives sufferers a distorted image of themselves.

Jolyon Cunningham lived with body dysmorphic disorder for more than 20 years before he took his own life.
