Birmingham's bearded heroes

The Bearded Broz are a volunteer group that help residents in the West Midlands, offering practical help and an emergency food service.

They shot to fame with the Birmingham bin strike, when they helped local residents clear their rubbish.

Spending time with the group, BBC Stories finds a group of volunteers who feel religious organisations are not doing enough for local communities.
