Man who left prison and became homeless calls for more to be done to help ex-offenders

Jamie Jones went to jail for eight weeks earlier this year. He had been renting a flat but when he left prison, he had been evicted for not paying the rent and found himself homeless.

It's a familiar story to many people leaving institutions in Wales.

Homelessness charity The Wallich says people are increasingly leaving prison without sufficient support to stop them ending up on the streets upon release.

The charity says Wales has a growing problem of people leaving prison with no accommodation on the outside.
