Church asked to keep out homeless

A church in Essex has been asked by local residents to take action to remove a group of people who are sleeping rough in its grounds.

St Alban the Martyr church in Westcliff claims the number of homeless people sheltering there has risen significantly in recent months, and that local residents have become increasingly concerned. Church leaders are working with the local authority to find a solution. Serena Sandhu reports.
