A cafe that opened in Bristol on Monday, serving food rescued from the bin, has already served meals that included lobster and gorgonzola.

The man behind it, Sam Joseph, originally from Somerset, has himself lived on food taken from skips for the past three years.

He is living on £5,000 saved from his student loan through not buying food.

The cafe is based in The Crofters Rights bar in Stokes Croft.
