The rough sleeper was spotted outside Kentish Town train station by Rob Braben, 18, and his mates, who popped to a shop to buy him snacks and water. But the group of teenagers were astonished when they spotted the former Labour leader coming out of the station and called him over. After feeling around in his pockets and leafing through an apparently-empty wallet, it appears as if Ed hasn’t got any money to give the to the homeless man. But the boys pipe up that there is a cash point over the road - and Ed goes and gets the man a tenner before stuffing the crumpled note in the homeless man’s hand.
