London's unsung heroes: Meet the people keeping the capital running during lockdown

There are so many people keeping the capital running during lockdown. Londoners quietly getting on with jobs that are vital but who often go unrecognised or unappreciated.

ITV News London is highlighting some of these key workers and honouring their hard work. In the first of our series we heard from the people cleaning properties in Camden for homeless people to stay in.

A hero postman delivered kindness to the front door of a customer in north London who was running low on essential supplies.

Ali Yilmaz left milk, eggs, fruit and a bunch of flowers on the doorstep of Cathy Drury in Edmonton after she became worried about getting food.

Ali said he wanted to help because he knew Cathy was vulnerable and struggling with the impact of the coronavirus crisis.

Supermarket workers have been busy day in, day out, stacking shelves, on the tills and even guarding entrances.

We spoke to the staff at ASDA in Basildon on how they're keeping the store going during the crisis.
