Oxford move-ons

April 3rd 2010

Rough sleepers have been moved on in east Oxford, the local authority announced on 10 March. As has been common in recent years across much of the UK, it was a joint outreach/police operation.

The site of a Victorian rubbish tip on the banks of the River Cherwell and River Thames has been used by a group of homeless for several months. City council spokesman Louisa Dean said: "We are aware that a number of rough sleepers at Aston's Eyot have moved from the site."

She added: "The Street Services Team and Thames Valley Police continue to work closely with all these people and to date a further two have been accommodated."
