Children in poverty: 'My blinds are really mouldy'

More than 3.5m children live below the poverty line in the UK, which has one of the worst child poverty rates in the industrialised world.

Some of these youngsters have been sharing their experiences for a new BBC documentary, Poor Kids.

They include 10-year-old Paige who lives in a flat in the Gorbals area of Glasgow.

Viewers in the UK can watch Poor Kids on BBC One, 2235 BST, Tuesday 7 June, and on BBC iPlayer after broadcast
