A New York police officer has been praised after a tourist photographed him buying a pair of boots for a barefoot beggar, thought to be a military veteran.

Larry DePrimo dipped into his own pocket to buy the boots and was snapped by Jennifer Foster, who saw him hand them over.

Ms Foster posted the image on the New York Police Department's Facebook page and his act of charity was picked up by the media.
