MP: Town's homelessness is scandalous

BBC News

The rate of rough sleeping in Warwick has been described as "scandalous" by the town's MP.

Figures recorded by the government suggested there were 21 people counted or estimated to be bedding down outdoors there in 2017, compared to 18 the year before.

When the statistics are divided up per 1,000 households, Warwick has the highest rate of homelessness in the West Midlands at 0.34% - a situation Matt Western MP lamented on Twitter.

He said: "But tonight is a different matter. The numbers are just beginning to sink in. It is an extraordinary, astonishing result," adding it represented an increase of about a 40% in Labour’s vote over two years.

He believed it was mainly due to the voters "disillusionment" with the Tory government and belief in Labour’s manifesto.
