'Real Life Spider-Man' Helps Homeless In Birmingham

A Birmingham man, who dressed as 'spider-man' is helping people living on the streets in the City.

The 20 year-old has been seen handing out food to the homeless over the last few weeks, while he's dressed in the superhero outfit.

He says he wants to keep his identity a secret, but has got the twitter account @BrumSpiderMan which he uses to let people know where he is and how he is helping others.

He's told Heart 'I've always handed out food to those who need it and it always put a smile on people's faces.'

'I thought to myself imagine the size of their smile if they saw Spider-man giving them food'

The anonymous man, who lives in the City, says he's doing it to raise awareness of homelessness and wants to encourage others to help them.


'We don't seem to see homeless people as humans and we don't help them out like we would anyone else'


He's also told Heart it's hard being a 'real life superhero'


He says he's planning to continue doing it.
