London's first Street Store opens in Whitechapel

Workers and businesses in Whitechapel came together to launch London's first ever Street Store.

The pop-up gives homeless people the chance to browse for clothes, food and other essentials.

The concept was first started in South Africa two years ago and since then has appeared in almost 400 different places around the world.
