Homeless young people will swap the pavements for the comfort of a posh London address thanks to a scheme which got the go-ahead yesterday.

Westminster Council has given the Cabinet Office permission to transform Admiralty Arch, at the corner of Trafalgar Square, into a hostel for the homeless this winter. Renovation of the 86-year-old building is expected to be completed in time for the hostel to open later this month.
