There has been another rise in the number of people living in emergency accommodation.

The latest figures show 9,846 people were homeless last month. That figure is made up of 6,020 adults and 3,826 children.

The Housing Minister has admitted that the increase is "very disappointing".

Eoghan Murphy said that it is "encouraging that the numbers of families accessing emergency accommodation in May fell".

The Minister also said he is working onĀ delivering "permanent housing solutions" for single people in emergency accommodation.

One charity has accused Eoghan Murphy of attempting to keep theĀ overall homeless figure under 10,000.

Anthony Flynn from Inner City Helping Homeless accused the Minister of being in "denial", and called for an "independent oversight on these figure immediately".
