Homeless man given job by local businessman - and it saved his life

A homeless man has been given a job and a place to live by a businessman in Birmingham who used to pass him begging on the street every day.

Kriss Wilkes says that on the day he was offered the job, he'd planned to take his own life.

But he now works for a living, and has a room to sleep in - also thanks to Shezad Zaman, who owns the car wash.
