    Sunderland, Tyne and Wear.

    3,000 kiddies of out-of-work parents receive presents, food and a free show at local cinema.

    M/S of a policeman ushering two little girls to a shop doorway where a woman gives them buns, a stream of children come out of the shop carrying presents in their hands - they look very scruffy but happy.
