The family of a devoted Nottingham Forest fan who took his own life have urged others to talk about their struggles with their mental health.

Jonathan McCartney, 35, from Southwell, who died in October, had shown no signs of depression, according to his family.

An article about Jonathan will be in the matchday programme when the Reds take on Bristol City later.

Graham McCartney said his son’s demise “turned their lives upside down” and now wanted to prevent further suicides.
