Blokes United: Football team 'helps men open up'

A football team in Blackburn is helping men open up about their mental health, organisers say.

Wayne Beck, who has bipolar disorder, set up Blokes United which invites men to meet up to play football and then go to the pub and share their problems and support each other.

New recruit John Bloomer said "football has saved my life".
