It's a hidden and growing problem - the number of youngsters facing life on the streets. The charity It's Your Choice based in the New Forest says it has worked with dozens of young people - sleeping anywhere from a friend's sofa to a derelict warehouse - or even a park bench. Now it has started new drop in sessions offering free food and advice. Kerry Swain has been hearing stories of those who have no place to call their own - and talking to the workers trying to help the young homeless.
