On November, 15 2016 Lucy Adcock jumped from the top of a multi-storey car park in Norwich, leaving herself with life-changing injuries.

Aged just 18 at the time and suffering from severe depression, she had intended to take her own life that day.

But thanks to a police officer who managed to grab her ankle at the last second, the fall did not kill her.

Flash forward almost nine months and Miss Adcock, from Brundall, has turned her life around.

Now Miss Adcock is sharing her story in the hope it will encourage others to do the same, she said: 'I could turn back time, I would have stopped myself.
