Watch as a homeless man playing piano moves commuters to tears

At first a policeman tried to stop him and told the homeless man to leave, but, eventually he let him sit at the piano.

“People, including the policeman, were stood by laughing to themselves as they watched the homeless man sit at the piano.

“However their mocking turned to shock as the man burst into a beautiful rendition of Für Elise.”

“He then played a variety of other classical pieces over the next half an hour, each time flawless.”

an school friend of the homeless man, Leo Robertson, set up a fundraising page to to help him find a place to live which has currently received just over £1,500 in donations in just two days.
