Norwich School sixth formers sleep rough to raise money for St Martins Housing Trust

Norwich School pupils bedded down on the cold floor of the cathedral's cloisters on Saturday night to support a homeless charity.

The sixth form students spent the night sleeping rough in aid of the St Martins Housing Trust and raised over �400.

The 43 pupils kept spirits up with ghost tales about the cloisters from Norwich ghost walker, the man in black, arm wrestling competitions and songs.

Inny Agnew, 17, said: 'It was really successful but I didn't expect it to be that cold.'

Organiser Alex Boyt said they managed to get around two hours of sleep.
