Stretford barber shop set up to cut homelessness

A barber shop set up to support those at risk of becoming homeless has opened in a Greater Manchester shopping mall.

Stretford's Skullfades claims to be the first "community barber shop" and also offers training and employment to ex-prisoners and former military staff.

Founder Ged King said it was an attempt to "catch people before they fall [and] reduce the numbers of people going on to the street".
