London's Youth 'Hidden Homeless' revealed

Education experts, charities and business leaders are attending a summit on the South Bank this evening to discuss youth homelessness.

It follows the launch of a report which says as many as 14,000 people under the age of 24 across the UK aren't on the radar of authorities, because they sleep at friends' houses, in cars, or sofa surf.

The tech firm Sage is behind the research and has worked with young people to help them tell their stories.

One of them is Yasmin, not her real name, from North London
