Hassan Saleemi decided to prove Londoners were indeed kind and caring by secretly filming himself in disguise in the busy square.

Holding a cardboard sign with the words “I’m homeless” on it, he is ignored by many people who walk straight past at first.

However, some stop to ask if he is okay and one man also offers him food. Mr Saleemi, 23, is then approached by three girls who generously offer him a £50 note.

Speaking about the video, uploaded to YouTube channel Hstar Vlogs, he told Mail Online: “I was born and bred in London and I have never experienced some of the negativity you see and hear about.

“As a Muslim I wanted to show that there are people out there who want to help and it doesn’t matter if you are homeless, Muslim or anything.

“When the three girl’s approached me and asked if I was OK and one of the girls offered me a £50 note it was a feeling I could not explain.

“To be honest I had to let them this was a social media experiment. After the kind gesture I just had to let them know.”

He said that during the hour-long experiment, more than 15 people approached him rather than walking by.
