PEOPLE across Oxfordshire are being invited to light a candle in a show of solidarity for suicide prevention this evening.

Oxford Health NHS Foundation Trust has echoed a global call for people to light candles near a window at 8pm to mark World Suicide Prevention Day.

The initiative, led by the International Association for Suicide Prevention, is for anyone who wants to show support for suicide prevention or to remember a lost loved one, and for survivors of suicide.
