Single mother praises govt's 'troubled family scheme'

A single mother said she would have lost her home were it not for a government scheme offering support to so-called 'troubled families'.

Tina Hill had "no prospects" and problems with her son Connor before she was given support as part of a multi-million pound driver after the 2011 riots.
