'Make do and mend' cafes springing up in region

Volunteers in Portsmouth have taken the fight to protect the environment into their own hands - running a repair cafe. They've saved hundreds of old items from the bin and repaired them instead.

Repair cafes are popping up all over the region - teaching people to make do and mend instead of buying new.
