Hull's homeless hostel sees surge in clients

Help

Hull's Salvation Army hostel is struggling to cope with the growing number of people needing its help, according to staff.

Staff at William Booth House said the hostel was full most nights following an increase in demand over the past six months.

One resident is Fred Clarke who became homeless when his relationship with his girlfriend ended.

He spoke to Radio Humberside's Gemma Dillon about life on the streets.
