    It's emerged there are 10 homes in Yorkshire for every person who has nowhere to live. 

    BBC research has revealed almost 23,000 properties have not been lived in for more than six months - with over 2,000 people homeless.

    It's a problem that many councils are aware of, some homes are being converted through social enterprise projects.

    Quote Message: It varies person-to-person whether you can handle it or not. As long as you stay dry and warm and know where you are going I guess it's self explanatory. I know a few people who have been on the streets 30 or 20 years. from Will 18-year-old rough sleeper

    BBC Local Live

    Humberside Police say officers have been attending Head Shops believed to be selling so-called "legal highs".

    They've been advising people running the shops about new legislation coming into force from April.

    The new law will make it an offence to produce or supply if it is likely to be used to get high.

    Quote Message: The term ‘legal highs’ is interpreted by some as meaning safe. Nothing could be further from the truth and making substances illegal that were previously sold legitimately reflects widely-held concerns about long-term health effects of these substances. from Superintendent Dave Houchin Chairman of the Humberside Strategic Drugs Group
