Starving children are eating from bins

Hi All
Just seen this:

Starving children are eating from bins in Fenton
RESIDENTS and charity leaders have spoken of their horror after seeing starving children scavenging through bins for food.
Youngsters have been searching through bins in the Hollings Street and Brocksford Street area of Fenton before eating any leftovers.
Concerned residents have raised the issue at a police meeting in Fenton.
Jade Poynton, aged 38, of Fenton, said: "My nan lives in Brocksford Street and there have been a couple of times when she has heard the bin lid slam against the window and seen people having a look through the bags. It was children and she has seen the same ones doing the same thing down the street and eating bits of food they find.
