London, England – “This isn, and will always be, a problem for people in London,” said Mayor Sadiq Khan, pointing to the recent spate of attacks on the city’s homeless population.
London has seen a surge in homelessness in recent months as the number and the numberages of those who have taken shelter in the capital have risen sharply. “
These attacks have to stop.”
London has seen a surge in homelessness in recent months as the number and the numberages of those who have taken shelter in the capital have risen sharply.
The number of Londoners sleeping rough has doubled in the past five years, and there have been more than 70 incidents of people being attacked or attacked with weapons since November.
But the latest statistics released by the Mayor’s Office on Tuesday suggest the issue has only grown worse.
The Mayor’s office said the number in London of people sleeping rough rose from 1,800 to 1,957 between March and July.
This is more than double the number recorded a year earlier, a trend that has continued unabated for the last three months.
The figure is up from 1 and a half months, but is down on the 1,900 people recorded a week last July.
Some people in the UK are now living in tents or tents in the city centre.
“It is unacceptable that people are sleeping in tents, in sheds, in cars, in garages, on the street, on park benches,” the Mayor said.
“And the people who are sleeping on the streets are people who don’t need to be in the street.”
The Mayor said that there was a “growing problem” of people on the outskirts of London sleeping in public spaces, including parks and shopping centres, which he called “out of control”.
“In London, we’ve had a record number of incidents of serious injury, with more than 200 people needing hospital treatment since January,” he said.
“There have been attacks on vulnerable people in public places, with children attacked and with people being shot, with people injured.”
The number recorded in June for attacks against people sleeping on pavements and on streets is up by nearly half, from 757 to 1.
The latest figures show more than two thirds of the city was found to have experienced at least one attack, including seven incidents of stabbing attacks.
“London is an amazing city, but it is also a city that is constantly under attack,” the mayor added.
“So we are doing everything we can to protect people in our city, wherever they are.”
Mr Khan also said that people living in shelters, or in informal settlements in the inner city, were “very much welcome” to come and live in the City of London.
He said there was an “unprecedented” rise in the number people seeking accommodation in the last two years, but that “this is not about the homeless people in Britain.”
“People living in informal settlement, those people, they are welcome to come here and live,” he told the BBC.
“We are not giving up, we are not turning our back on them, we have been working hard to get them off the streets.”
London’s homeless problem has risen dramatically since a similar surge in the summer of 2016, and many in the region are concerned that the Government has not yet addressed the issue.
The Government has set out a range of plans to tackle homelessness, including the Mayor has pledged to provide more housing and help people with mental health issues. “
Our commitment is to end homelessness in the shortest possible time, and we are going to get it done.”
