A march was held around Birmingham city centre last week in memory of Kane but to also call for more to be done to help rough sleepers.

In upsetting scenes recorded last summer, Kane was seen in a video sobbing and telling a charity worker: 'I'm done. I can't do it no more' just months before he died.

He continued to tell the workers that he "could no longer live like this".

The service will be held at St Chad's Cathedral and is open all day.

It will begin at 11am on Sunday (17 February).
