Homeless choir performs as Brighton's rough sleeper numbers almost double

A choir full of people who once slept on the streets has played in Brighton this week - as new figure's show the city's homeless population has almost doubled.

Today the Government announced a new £1.25million grant to help tackle the 'homeless crisis' in the city. But campaigners say its not nearly enough.

Andy Dickenson reports and speaks to Arthur Richford and Emma Broomfield from the Choir With No Name, Cllr Clare Moonan of Brighton and Hove City Council, and Andy Winter of the Brighton Housing Trust.
