Birmingham couple buys house for asylum seekers

A couple saving for their own home have bought a house for asylum seekers instead.

Matthew and Steph Neville, from Birmingham, saved for years for their own home but in an act of kindness have decided to offer it to people who have nowhere else to turn.

They're currently part of a Christian community and live in a church.

By Christmas, a group of people who've recently arrived in the city will have moved into the terraced house.
