London's Euston Station will host a full Christmas lunch for 200 homeless people later, as public spaces UK-wide open their doors to those in need. Volunteers worked overnight after the last train left on Christmas Eve - transforming the station concourse with decorations and tables. The first guests arrive at 11:00 GMT for food, company and goody bags of presents, clothes and toiletries. Gyms and theatres are also opening to the homeless on Christmas Day. About 30 volunteers from Network Rail are turning out alongside charities St Mungo's and Street Kitchen to provide 'some festive cheer' at Euston, which is normally the UK's fifth-busiest rail station.
Euston Station in London has become a banqueting hall for 200 homeless people on Christmas Day.
