29 Winter shelters open for the homeless

The Homeless charity Glass Door is opening its winter shelters this evening.

The organisation says it has 29 sites available, offering a safe and warm space for as many as 130 people in the capital.

Last week it was confirmed that London had a record number of rough sleepers in the three months to September.

We've spoken to one man with experience of homelessness, who now works with the charity to help others.
