A man has landed a job after standing by a roundabout holding a placard pleading for work in Stoke-on-Trent.

Mark Wheeldon, 23, was offered a job three hours after standing with the sign in the rain in Hanley.

Vince Champion, a director at Smart Timber Frame Company, said he was impressed by Mr Wheeldon's tenacity and "determination to find a job".

The number of people in the city on Jobseeker's Allowance is above the national average.
