A charity is preparing to open its first houses for homeless people in a town where a “cardboard city” of dwellers has sprung up, according to the BBC.
The Selig (Suffolk) Trust, operates the winter night shelter in Ipswich, which has been used by about 30 rough-sleepers in previous years, with more being turned away.
But over the summer, with the shelter closed, shelters made from cardboard boxes and sofas have appeared in front of the local swimming pool, offices and a former cinema in the town.
The trust says it has been offered two houses which they could use and estimates they could be ready for use within a year.
