Roma beggars talk of why they return

After many Roma beggars were sent home from Marble Arch, BBC London has investigated why some many choose to return to London.

During the summer the government spent thousands of pounds flying or bussing many of Marble Arch's Roma beggars and rough sleepers back home.

But now, it turns out, some of them are heading straight back to London.

BBC London reporter Gareth Furby went to Romania to track some of them down and find out why sleeping rough on the streets of London is a better option for them than staying at home.
