A new film tackles issues of homelessness in London
3rd December 2014

Winter, and of course, Christmas, can be a tough time for people living on the streets. 

One award-winning filming maker is hoping to tackle the issues facing homelessness in the capital. 

Paul Young is behind a new short film based on a true story of a young woman sleeping rough on the streets in London. 

He hopes it will challenge preconceived perceptions of homelessness.

He joined Headline London to talk through the film along with the film's producer Kaushik Bhattacharya.
