A homeless man won a photography competition after his picture entitled ‘A New Day Of Hope’ was judged to be the standout contribution.

The initiative - which was ran by the Salvation Army in conjunction with the council’s Rough Sleepers Initiative - invited the Eastbourne homeless community to express what homelessness meant to them.
