Homeless Studs u-turn

Interesting article from the BBC recently which describes how 'homeless studs' were installed in a block of flats in south London to deter rough sleeping. These were subsequently uninstalled after a 120,000 name partition called for them to be removed.

As Councillor Peter John commented in the article: "People sleeping rough should be treated with dignity and respect, and not with spikes."..."While spikes may stop someone sleeping outside your home, it does not help someone off the streets."
