The likes of Ed Sheeran and Passenger began their careers by busking on the streets.
Musicians Ben Dixon and David Fisher, who ply their trade in central London, hope to follow in their footsteps.

The two want Westminster City Council to work directly with street performers, rather than imposing “restrictive rules” they say could negatively impact buskers.
