More help for children dealing with losing a parent or sibling

About 3.5% of school age children in Scotland have lost a parent or sibling. NHS Scotland says that's the equivalent of roughly one child in every class coping with bereavement.

An Edinburgh based charity which has already helped more than 3,000 young people come to terms with their grief is now launching a new service in Glasgow.

It comes as the NHS in Scotland is teaching its staff how to talk to children as they face dealing with the death of someone close.
