The Mayor of London Boris Johnson and owner of London Live, the Evening Standard and the Independent titles, Evgeny Lebedev, spent a night sleeping rough on the streets of London to raise awareness of homelessness in the capital.
They spent Friday night on a pavement on Gresham Street, a five minute walk from St Paul’s Cathedral.
The event was part of ESi Media’s Homeless Veterans campaign. Mr Lebedev said: "I grew up believing those people who risk their lives for ones country should be looked after when they come home."
Boris Johnson said they were hoping to stop people becoming accustomed to life on the streets. He said "You've got to help people fast and you've got to help them early."
