Fara Williams: 'I played for England, whilst homeless'

Fara Williams, the most capped England footballer of all time, says she was homeless for the first six years of her career.

Family difficulties meant the 30-year-old England and Liverpool ladies midfielder had to live in a hostel, whilst playing professional football.

Williams, who now works as an ambassador with the Homeless FA, told BBC Radio 5 live's Sam Walker: "I was afraid and scared and I didn't want people to think any less of me."
