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

The latest official figures from the Department of Housing show 9,968 people were homeless last month.

The Housing Minister has described the increase as "anticipated", as rough sleepers are moved into temporary beds for winter.

Eoghan Murphy has admitted it is "very disappointing" to see more children in emergency accommodation as we enter into Christmas week.
