"I was at sea on the fishing boats for over 20 years but the new government fishing-quotas made sure many boats simply stopped going out.

"I lost my eye to a fishing gaff. I moved up here to find work but everyone takes one look at me and there is suddenly no job.

"Now I sleep on the streets and survive any way I can."
