An author from Hastings is calling on the town's authorities to use some of its empty properties to solve the problem of homelessness.
Writer Joe Rooney has weighed in on the debate on the issue in the hope of working towards a solution in Hastings and St Leonard's-on-Sea in Sussex.
Other interviewees in Derek Johnson's report include John Gorman, a volunteer helping the homeless; Kim and Claire who sleep on the streets; and Councillor Jeremy Birch, the Leader of Hastings Borough Council.
