More than 9,000 people will wake up on Christmas Day in tents, cars, trains and buses as a result of the UK’s homelessness crisis, a leading charity has warned.

Crisis said 9,100 people are “hidden” rough sleepers, in addition to 9,000 more who are sleeping on the streets and 120,000 who will spend the festive season in temporary accommodation.

The number of hidden homeless is set to rise further still, by 47 per cent to 13,400, in the next decade if nothing is done. It has already increased by 57 per cent since 2011, when the figure stood at 5,800.
