When she arrived at Euston to travel home from London, Nicole Sedgebeer found that she had missed the last train and the station was locked.

“As I got round the corner my homeless friend Mark was running down the street towards me. Not only did he turn up but he had to get a bus to come get me.

She added: “Mark you are one special man, I will never look down on a homeless person again.”
