Lancashire-based Silver Line receives millionth call

The confidential helpline to support older people has received its millionth call.

Silver Line, based in Kirkham, Lancashire, has run a 24-hour helpline since 2013 and receives calls from 1,000 people every day - with loneliness the biggest problem.

It was founded by Dame Esther Rantzen, who also established Childline.
