There is a new drive to get Cornwall's homeless off the streets this winter.

Officials are working with charities and housing groups to provide emergency shelter.

The council says around eighty people are sleeping rough in the Duchy.

Dad of three, Jay, was among them in Camborne last winter. He said, "It makes you depressed. The cold was bad. A friend of mine was in St Austell in just a t-shirt. He ended up with frostbite on his feet, which he still suffers with today."

Lorna Davies runs a drop in centre in Camborne. She said, "I reach a point where I think, how many people does it take before we can do more for the people that are there. Eighty is a ridiculous number. It's sad enough that it's one."
