"Bleak Friday" for young homeless

The youth charity Centrepoint has named today 'Bleak Friday' for the sixteen thousand people throughout the UK who will find themselves without a home this Christmas. Figures show that more than three thousand youngsters in Greater Manchester alone, have been homeless or found themselves at risk of homelessness throughout the last year. Greater Manchester's Metro Mayor, Andy Burnham, says it's a problem that needs tackling urgently.
