150 children 'homeless in Wakefield'

Shelter says 10 children are in need of accommodation across Yorkshire and the Humber every day.

The charity say 810 children across the region are homeless and living in temporary accommodation. The report also shines a light on the 5,683 families with children in Britain who are currently living in emergency B&Bs and hostels.

Shelter is warning that if nothing changes 90 children across Yorkshire and the Humber will be made homeless between now and the time of the general election on December 12th, and 220 by Christmas day on December 25.

The charity is calling on every political party to put housing at the top of its domestic agenda.
