London charity 'Groundwork' turning trash into treasure

Six out of ten of the worst areas in the country for fly-tipping are in London.

It costs taxpayers hundreds of thousands of pounds a year to clear up these illegal dumping grounds.

But not all of the rubbish ends up in landfill.

Charities like Groundwork London collect and repurpose old furniture, before selling it back to members of the public.

Inside Out London went to meet them.
