Bournemouth anti-homeless benches 'a council cop-out'

Metal bars to stop people sleeping on public benches in Bournemouth are a "council cop-out" and an attempt to make homelessness "invisible", campaigners have said.

Rapper Professor Green is among those who have condemned the retrofitting of bars by Bournemouth Borough Council.

The authority said it had made the changes following complaints about people lying on benches during the daytime.
