London Euston rail station hosts Christmas lunch for 200 homeless people
Scores of homeless people were given a Christmas lunch at London’s Euston railway station – which was turned into a shelter for the day. Volunteers from Network Rail and charity workers decked out the concourse, which would otherwise have been empty as no trains were running, before laying on a festive feast. A Christmas lunch of smoked salmon, a bowl of soup, a roast and Christmas pudding was served for desert to the 200 people invited.
