South Wales Police said it is investigating after a 19-year-old was found dead in Cardiff.
The man, who was found in Hamadryad Park in Cardiff Bay was sleeping rough, according to Cardiff Council.
South Wales Police is investigating the unexplained death of a 19-year-old man in Hamadryad Park, Cardiff Bay. Next of kin have been informed and a file is being prepared for HM Coroner.
The council said the man was known to their outreach and accommodation services and had received help on a "number of occasions."
We are working every day to help people come off the streets and since April last year we have helped 175 people into accommodation. There is a wide range of accommodation and services available and I want the public to know that there is no need for anyone to sleep out at night in our city.
Cllr Thorne added many rough sleepers in the city "choose not to access accommodation" and said they will also be investigating the circumstances surrounding the man's death to see what "lessons can be learned".
“I want to take this opportunity to say to rough sleepers, please don’t stay out – we have accommodation for you. Come in, work with us and let us help you".
