The Archbishop of Canterbury has urged people to adopt a New Year's resolution of tackling poverty in their own neighbourhoods.
The Most Rev Justin Welby said in his first New Year message as head of the Church of England that many people were "struggling" in spite of many signs of hope.
The Archbishop said: "I want to suggest this year that each of us makes a resolution to try and change the world a bit where we are.
"Nelson Mandela said that dealing with poverty is not an act of charity, it's an act of justice, he said every generation has the chance to be a great generation and we can be that great generation."
