Grieving parents: 'We felt we were locked in at home'

More than 100,000 lives have been lost to coronavirus in the UK.

One of those lives belonged to 32-year-old Tom May, who died in March last year after he got Covid.

His parents Sylvia and Carl May explained how grieving their son during lockdown was "absolutely soul-destroying" as they couldn't surround themselves with family.

Talking to Rachel Burden, they also reflected on how they will remember their son.

"He was 32 but he lived his life at 100 miles an hour," added Sylvia.
