Anger in UK over anti-homeless device

Luxury London apartment block makes it clear homeless are unwelcome by putting metal spikes around its entrance.

    London has a growing number of homeless people as a result of a combination of factors, including inflated rental prices, a chronic supply shortage of affordable new housing and cuts in welfare spending.

    Now, one luxury apartment block has caused a huge row after making it clear homeless people are not welcome by cementing rows of metal spikes into the pavement outside the building.
