"Manchester shelter for homeless closes after three months."

"A 24 HOUR homeless shelter opened less than three months ago to kick off Mayor Andy Burnham's flagship 'bed every night' has closed permanently due to electrical problems.
It closed on Christmas Eve when faults were found with the electricity and has not opened since.
Manchester council which commissioned the shelter run by housing organisation Riverside has now confirmed it will stay shut permanently with sources suggesting that it would have cost thousands of pounds to put right."

Meanwhile across town: "Manchester council splashes out £1m on repairs to water feature. Manchester council will have spent more than £1m fixinging city centre fountains in two years after it confirmed plans to refurbish the Exchange water feature." Jennifer Williams of the Manchester Weekly News.

The majority of us are only a couple of default payments away from the front door to the tent flap where, God forbid, they will almost certainly find themselves in the hands of people that could not organise a piss up in a brewery.
