Tibetan monk takes in homeless teenager in Cardiff

A Tibetan monk who has been living in Cardiff for the past seven years has been praised for taking in a teenager from the streets of the city and giving him a home.

Lama Lobsang found 18-year-old Tilo Kaye homeless in the capital, but it was only when he offered him a place to stay that he discovered he was German and had had his passport stolen and wallet looted.

Now, thanks to Lama, Tilo has flown back to Germany to be reunited with his family.

We went to meet him before he boarded the plane.
