Rush hour commuters were left horrified after youths threw a firework at a homeless man in Birmingham city centre.
Witnesses said the victim was inside his sleeping bag outside Moor Street Station, around 5.20pm today (Wednesday), when the gang of youths launched the firework at him.
The rough sleeper was engulfed in smoke while the teens ran off in the direction of Eastside. It is unclear if the homeless man was injured.
The Moor Street Station vicinity was packed with commuters and shoppers at the time.
