Teenager to scale mountain in mission to help city's homeless

The Government has announced they've earmarked £100m to help cope with the rising tide of homelessness.

It's a problem that's particularly bad in Brighton where the homeless population has more than doubled - with 180 sleeping on the streets every night.

Two children were so shocked to see people sleeping rough in the cold last Christmas they've been raising money for charity ever since. Their efforts have reached new heights - with a sponsored climb up Mount Snowdon. Andy Dickenson reports.
