From Nigeria to Greece: The migrant who lost it all at sea

Hundreds of migrants are crossing the Mediterranean everyday, trying to reach European countries, mainly Italy and Greece.

Many of them reach the shores with their belongings, and some money. But others lose it all during the sea journey.

Kingsley is one of these migrants, who ended up sleeping rough on the Greek island of Leros, until he could get some cash to carry on.

He told his story to the BBC's Murad Shishani.

Video Journalist: Paul Harris; Producers: Vladimir Hernandez, Natalie Vickerman and Daphne Tolis.
