Blackpool couple win award for their homeless project

A couple from Blackpool who have just won a national award for their homeless charity.

It means even more to them as they themselves were once forced to sleep rough.

Carol and Len Fowler had settled in the seaside resort in the 1980s with hopes of running a guest house.

But as visitor numbers dropped so too did their income and they ended up living on the streets.

Now they run a charity called The Well project, which provides food and support for homeless people.

Amy Welch reports.
