Funeral for homeless man Kane Walker in Birmingham

A funeral has been held for Kane Walker, a homeless man who was found dead in an underpass in Birmingham.

Perry Barr Crematorium was packed with people who paid tribute to the "bubbly" young man who, "just needed some help". The funeral was paid for by donations.

Just months before his death, a tearful Kane Walker was filmed by the charity Active Christians saying, "I'm done".

Liam Byrne, Labour MP for Birmingham's Hodge Hill, said he wanted a "Kane's Law", to help protect those who are sleeping rough across the city.
