When you’re deployed overseas away from your children you miss out on those family moments like reading a bedtime story.

Now two mums who know this feeling all too well have developed an app to help fill the gap.

Forces Radio BFBS’ Jess Bracey speaks to forces wife Helena Thomas and founder of the StorySnap app Lizzie Crudington about where the idea came from.

You can find out more information about the app on their website www.storysnap.org.
