Bournemouth Borough Council has vowed to remove 'anti-homeless' bars from benches in the town centre after a public backlash.
More than 19,000 people signed a petition to remove the bars claiming they were installed to stop homeless people sleeping on them.
Musician Professor Green became involved in the row by posting footage of his friend removing the bars last week.

The council has "reviewed its decision" stating they will be removed "in the next few days".
The bars cost the council £3,650 to buy and install.
