A woman tells us she's forced to steal food

A woman who doesn't wish to be named speaks of the daily struggle to feed her two children. As reports of food theft are on the rise in England and Wales, she says that she’s also been forced to steal: “You feed your kids or you go without."

This comes as a study from the Faculty for Public Health says there's been a twenty per cent rise in the number of people who've been admitted to hospital in England with malnutrition in the last year. It says more people are eating cheaper, poor quality food because that's all they can afford.
