Our shocking findings have uncovered the shameful conditions homeless children will be living in this Christmas. Parents and children sharing beds, children being forced to eat on the floor and being threatened with violence in the place they live: this shouldn't be happening in 21st century Britain.
More than 2000 children in the South West will be homeless this Christmas, according to the housing charity Shelter. It has launched an emergency appeal.
