Thousands of people in the region could be made homeless this Christmas

Thousands of people in the North West could face the threat of becoming homeless this Christmas.

According to the charity Shelter:

  • More than 12 thousand homes were repossessed in Greater Manchester alone last year.
  • Eight of the region's boroughs have been indentified as 'eviction hotspots'. (Manchester, Tameside, Bolton, Salford, Oldham, Halton, Knowsley, Liverpool)

  • And the problem will only get worse as the effects of the recession bite.
