Foodbank struggling to keep up with demand

An organisation which helps provide emergency food supplies for people who've hit hard times says it is busier than ever.

The Stroud Food Bank opened last December but says it now needs bigger premises and more food donations to keep up with demand.

The centre says up to 40% of those it is feeding are children.
