13509492555_51b8051ac0_b.jpg?profile=RESIZE_710xLabour analysis finds nine of 10 councils with highest fatalities had cuts more than three times national average

Local government funding cuts are disproportionately hitting areas that have the highest numbers of deaths among homeless people, according to a Labour party analysis.

Nine of the 10 councils with the highest numbers of homeless deaths in England and Wales between 2013 and 2017 have had cuts of more than three times the national average of £254 for every household.

They are Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Blackburn, Liverpool and the four London boroughs of Camden, Westminster, Lambeth and Tower Hamlets.
