Rough sleepers in Northampton react to council claim that it is a "lifestyle choice"

A number of people are choosing to sleep rough as a "lifestyle choice", a council report has claimed.

An investigation by Northampton Borough Council discovered 21 homeless people in the town, including "a significant proportion of European migrants".

The people were "resolutely refusing to leave the streets", the report said.

BBC reporter Craig Lewis asked some of the town's homeless what they thought.
