The Duke of Cambridge has praised the work being done to help young people at risk of ending up living on the street during a visit to a homeless shelter in Birmingham.

The facility - part of a network of centres in the Midlands - offers a safe, supported environment, accommodation and access to training and education, and the Duke told his hosts he was "bowled over" by the charity's work after meeting the young residents.
