THE brother of a Salisbury man who took his own life has released a song in his memory.

"A song for Kristian, loved by many" is written and performed by Harry Rees, younger brother of Kristian Greer.

Kristian, 28, died on July 1, 2020.

Harry, 24, says the song is about Kristian, but it’s also about his take on what happened last year, and "the questions I asked myself".

He added: "I recorded the video at the spot Kristian took his last breath and look at the world, and also sat at the bench in his name."

Harry has described his brother as "my best mate, my role model and idol".

The music video was made and produced by Bad Habit, edited and directed by Tom Hawkins, and filmed by James Strutt.

You can watch the video below, when it premieres on YouTube at 6pm.

One of Kristian's closest friends has also completed a marathon in his memory.

From June 29, David Whitaker ran four miles, every four hours, for 48 hours.

His challenge finished at 8am on July 1 at Kristian's memorial bench in Old Sarum.

David said: "There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about Kristian. Like to many others, he was one of my closest friends - a special person, one of a kind.

"While he was looking after me he was going through his own struggles but never told me what battles he was facing. I wish he opened up more to me like I did to him."

David added: "I miss him so much and when I have those moments where I know I can’t speak to him, knowing I can’t ever again, it’s heartbreaking.

"Anyone that is struggling at the moment and needs a friend or chat please don’t hesitate to contact me."
