Birmingham council cleaning up the city, but alas not the problem.
This Midland council is planning to fine rough sleepers £1,000 for using a tent.
The fines will be imposed by Stoke-on-Trent City Council across the city centre.
Fines will also be issued for persistent - or aggressive - begging, the drinking of alcohol in public, and loitering in public toilets despite not using the loo.
Anyone who fails to pay their £100 on-the-spot penalty notice can be prosecuted and fined up to £1,000 in court.
The maximum court fine for drinking in public is £500.
More needs to be done to tackle homelessness and the government simply aren't doing enough. More affordable housing is required.
