    Good material of rough sleepers drinking and talking - dirty clothes and tired faces.

    Pinewood Stock Can material.

    Various shots of a group of rough sleepers / vagrants / down and outs standing in a back street - some appear to be eating. The man in the foreground appears to be drunk. CU of one man who is talking to camera. VS of group, sitting inside old building - they all look fairly dirty and down at heel and some of them are enjoying a drink.
