Romanians sleeping rough in London DOUBLES in year as migration fuels homeless crisis

THE number of Romanians sleeping rough on the streets of London has almost DOUBLED in a year, as officials blamed migrants for the escalating homelessness problem.

Vagrants from the east European country now make up a fifth of the capital’s homeless as figures continue to rise, blighting some of the wealthiest areas such as Park Lane.

The staggering report found of the 7,581 rough sleepers last year, 1,388 said they were from Romania – almost double the 730 recorded the previous year.


Overall, 7,581 people were recorded sleeping on the city streets by researchers last year, a 16 per cent rise on 2014.

Ministers have been warned the sharp increase in homeless is due to migrants, many from former Soviet bloc EU countries.
