Hundreds turn out to pay tribute to 'Tea Cosy Pete'

Hundreds of people have turned out in Swansea's Castle Square to pay tribute to a much-loved homeless man known affectionately as 'Tea Cosy Pete'.

Local man Pete, who was in his 60s, passed away recently in hospital.

Photographs of him were shown on a large screen in the square, speeches were read and a minute's silence was observed in remembrance.

Locals have described Pete as a quiet, educated and proud man, who chose to live the life he led. Many recalled that while he would accept a coffee or a sandwich, he politely refused offers of financial help - and in fact returned any money he found, sometimes walking miles to reunite lost purses or wallets with their owners.
