A MAN has set up a website where people can remember those who have died of coronavirus following the death of his grandmother.

Alistair MacLeod, from York, set up Not Another Number following the death of his grandmother, Sheila Black, 85, on May 2.

The 23-year-old video editor said: "We are just one of hundreds of families affected by this in the same way. Every single day, hundreds of families are losing loved ones but we don't see any of the people or faces or the stories behind all those numbers.

"I wanted to share more stories about my grandma and let people she is not just another number. Every face is a story and has happy memories."

He has built the website and is inviting anyone who has had a friend or relative die in the pandemic to get in touch to add a photograph, along with stories or memories of them.

Mr MacLeod added: "My grandma was a fierce, strong, independent woman. She travelled the world and brought up two children on her own.

"She is not just an elderly lady, it's not like she wasn't contributing to society. She was part of all of our lives."
