The boss of a Plymouth homelessness charity says the number of people asking for help in the city is higher than ever before.

Figures seen by ITV Westcountry show almost 200 people visited the Shekinah Mission's drop-in centre last month - a rate of around 50 per day.

Cuts to welfare, the introduction of Universal Credit and problems with the justice system are being blamed for the spike - but the Government says it remains committed to ending rough sleeping in the next few years.
