A city councillor in Norwich is calling for people to stop giving money directly to beggars on the streets and instead give it to charities specifically set up to help the homeless.
Bert Bremner says money given to beggars will be spent on drugs and alcohol.
He wants charitable people in the city to give their money to organisations who can offer support to homeless people and break any substance abuse habits.
