A large group of women including students from Oregon USA, appear to be caught in a downpour of women's bras at the launch of Oxfam's Big Bra Hunt in Spitalfields Market in east London.

Oxfam launched the 'Big Bra Hunt' at London's Spitalfields market yesterday, starting a month-long campaign to increase unwanted bra donations.

Some will be sold in Oxfam's UK shops, but many will be sent to its ethical second-hand clothing project in Senegal, Frip Ethique, where they fetch high prices and help give employment to disadvantaged women.
