There has been another rise in the number of people living in emergency accommodation.

The latest figures show 9,872 people were staying in hotels and B&B's last month.

An increase of 26 more than the month before. The Housing Minister has described the latest increase as "unwelcome".

Anthony Flynn from Inner City Helping Homeless believes the true figure is thousands higher:

"We have up to thousand people over the last four months that have been re-categorised out of homelessness the ministers' office are not independently verifying figures."
