TO Barcley Spencer Jenkins and Ed Lloyd it doesn’t seem like much of a story at all.
It was simply a natural decision to hand over their flat keys to two men who would have otherwise spent Christmas in a tent on the beach.

There is a lot of negativity to be said about the expat population of the Costa del Sol.
But these two Brits, both just 21, along with everyone working in soup kitchens or charity fund-raising, epitomise the caring attitude expats can bring.
It is a timely reminder of the importance of kindness, and one we should all take on board.
