What's It Like Living In An Abandoned Hospital In London?

You may not have heard of Live-In Guardians, but for many people in the capital, it's a lifeline.

We speak to artist, Adam Popley, about his new home in Shadwell, and find out what it's like living with 40 strangers inside an former maternity hospital.
