AN EMERGENCY plan to keep homeless people sheltered during the pandemic has been extended.
Hundreds of rough sleepers have been given self-contained accommodation in Brighton and Hove to keep them off the streets during the coronavirus crisis.
The measures were first brought in at the end of March to ensure that people complied with lockdown rules, and to stop the spread of the virus.
Current plans were set to finish at the end of September.
Now Brighton and Hove City Council says 372 units have so far been found to house the homeless, which will run until the end of December.
