A new centre to help people in Hull who are homeless has opened. The Orchard provides both somewhere to live and somewhere to work for up to 30 people who may otherwise have to stay on the streets.

The people who move in get a roof over their head in accommodation with room for 30 people and a job in the furniture warehouse run by the charity Emmaus Hull. It collects second hand furniture, cleans it up and sells it on.

For the first six people to move in, memories of their time on the streets are still vivid:

The centre has been open for just over a month, the first like it in east Yorkshire and Lincolnshire. Those who run it say for every £1 spent it saves the government £11 because those living there no longer need benefits.
