A group of people who set up a café in Birmingham which serves food that would otherwise be thrown away has said that 600 tonnes of perfectly good food are wasted every day in the city.

The Real Junk Food Project collects food that is out of date and fruit and vegetables deemed unfit for sale and makes fresh meals, asking customers to pay what they feel.

Far too much good food is going to waste in Britain, campaigners believe.
