Heartwarming moment American left homeless in Birmingham is given new waterproof boots by stranger

This is the heartwarming moment an American left homeless in Birmingham tries on his new boots - thanks to a kind-hearted stranger.

Originally born in New York, 25-year-old Mikey is a dual American and Polish citizen and moved to England four years ago to work.

He lost his job and with no family support network he became homeless - and is now facing his third Christmas on the streets of Birmingham.

In the touching video Mikey takes off his drenched and tatty Air Jordans and slips on his new size 10 waterproof Karrimor boots, bought through funds raised by driving instructor Mark Cosgrove.
