Corby's former police station being used to house homeless

A police station vacated by the town's force is being used to house the homeless.

The station in Corby, Northamptonshire, has been turned into a temporary shelter for 35 people by a local charity.

The site has beds and washing facilities, and volunteers from Corby Nightlight provide catering to the residents.

It is hoped the shelter can provide a new home to dozens of people - with a range of ages - who are currently living in a makeshift camp in nearby woodland.
