As Lucy Meacock sleeps rough in Chester, we ask for your stories

Granada Reports' Lucy Meacock slept rough on the streets of Chester last night to highlight the plight of homeless people.

Only last week it emerged that nearly 500 homeless people had died in the UK in the last 12 months.

It's a growing problem right across the North West - so wherever you are in the region we're really keen to know what you think - and we'd like you to share your experiences with us.

Here, Lucy tells us about her experience.

Never make assumptions about the person sleeping in that doorway. It could be you. It could be me. Last night it was me.
