London ambulance man who sleeps in a car

Chris Stevenson-Quayle is not your average London Ambulance Service worker.

When he is not working he raises chickens and lives with his family in the heart of the North Yorkshire countryside.

It is an idyllic existence but on an ambulance wage he has to make sacrifices and that involves sleeping in a car during his working week before driving four hours back home to his family.

Chris says he has to live in his car because rents in the capital are too expensive and he does not want to give up his lifestyle in the north.

Gareth Furby finds out how he does it and, more importantly, why.
