Rough sleeping: London figures hit record high

4971019738_f6a1817e16_b.jpg?profile=RESIZE_710xThe number of rough sleepers in London has reached a record high after an increase of nearly one fifth in a year, new figures have shown.

Research commissioned by the Greater London Authority found 8,855 people slept rough in the capital between April 2018 and March 2019.

That figure has risen from 7,484 the previous year - and 62% of them were sleeping rough for the first time.
