A homeless man from Leicester has been helped by a Good Samaritan, after appearing on ITV News Central.

Jimmy's story of his struggle living rough in a garage during freezing temperatures went viral. It was seen by Jamie Richardson, from Leeds who helped him move to the city, find accommodation, bought him clothes and his first takeaway for 3 years.

Jimmy has moved to Yorkshire and helps out in the carpet shop for free as a way of thanking Jamie for all he's done. He's now claiming jobseekers allowance and is looking for work.
