Manchester Chinatown fire victims' generosity praised by fellow rough sleeper

A friend of two rough sleepers who died in a fire in a derelict building in Manchester's Chinatown last week has paid tribute to them.

The man - who did not want to be identified - said the pair, named locally as "Uncle Albert" Wayne and "Popeye" James, sought refuge there because they kept being moved off the streets.

He said the men would always share what little they had with fellow homeless people.
