Scotland in brief: May 29, 2020

HOMELESSNESS: Rough sleeping in Scotland has been reduced to a “handful” of individuals, but it will be a huge challenge to find accommodation for them once lockdown measures end, MSPs were told yesterday.

Holyrood's local-government committee heard evidence from three charities about the impact of the coronavirus crisis on homelessness.

Mike Wright, service manager at the Cyrenians charity, stressed that “some quite difficult choices” still need to be made.
