London's Recovery College for the homeless expands to other areas

An innovative college for homeless people in London has been so successful, the idea is now being copied in other parts of the country.

The Recovery College was set up by the charity St Mungo's one year ago and it has helped more than 600 homeless students take 60 different courses, ranging from maths to bicycle repair.

More than 60 students have gone onto further education and second college is to open in Bristol.

BBC London's Emilia Papadopoulos speaks to student David Lawrence and St Mungo's Andy Williams.
