The county councillors at the meeting of the Carlisle area committee heard claims that some people slept in the gardens of Hardwicke Circus, a roundabout outside the Civic Centre.

Councillor Val Tarbitt, who is Armed Forces Champion, said she had been told homeless ex-servicemen went there, and Councillor Lawrence Fisher added: “I regularly report those people who sleep at the New Waterton Hall on some benches that are outside.”

The meeting has asked to meet city council representatives to discuss homelessness.

A city council spokeswoman said the authority monitored rough sleeping and the figure varied: “We work closely with local partner agencies and are committed to assisting all vulnerable people within the district who are homeless or at risk of homelessness."
