Crisis has called for urgent action after figures revealed that, despite signs of economic recovery, the number of people sleeping rough in London has risen again.

The figures, released by the Combined Homelessness and Information Network (CHAIN), show that 2,029 people were sleeping on the streets of London during the first quarter of 2014, an eight per cent increase on the same period last year. This comes on the back of three years of rises in rough sleeping representing a 75% increase.
