A homeless charity in Cambridge has found a new way to help the city's rough sleepers.

Six new 'micropods' have been built for those experiencing homelessness.

It's thought the 25 square meter modular homes are the first of their kind in the UK. Jimmy's says people have waited patiently and are really excited to move in.

The project was a collaboration between homeless charity Jimmy's Shelter, the Allia Future Business Centre and social enterprise New Meaning.

Designer Simon Bray wanted to create proper homes not just somewhere to live.
