London Tonight has won a Creative Diversity Network award for coverage on young homeless people in London.

The news programme's report London's Young Homeless won the prize after being shortlisted for this year's Best News Coverage at the CDN awards.

The film was made for London Tonight by a young woman called Sophia Kichou, who filmed her own short documentary on homelessness in the capital with her ITN mentor Nicolette Amette.

Sophia's report challenged the stereotypes of youth homelessness. She made it for the ITV News and Media Trust Breaking Into News competition - which she won.
