MP for Milton Keynes North, Mark Lancaster has encouraged residents to help the homeless people of Milton Keynes.
Following the outbreak of cold weather, Mark has called for residents in the city to keep a close eye out for those sleeping rough around MK.
With various homeless charities working hard around the city including Shelter, Orbit Housing and the YMCA, the figures suggest that there are 6 people sleeping rough every night. Mark would like to encourage residents who spot homeless people to call Street Link on 0300 500 0914.
Mark said "With such long spells of cold weather occurring recently, I would encourage all residents to call Street Link if they spot someone sleeping on the streets. It is a brilliant initiative which I hope will see homeless people removed from the streets and into accommodation."
