Thousands sleep out to raise awareness for homelessness
Thousands of people have camped out overnight as part of a global effort to raise cash to tackle homelessness.
Celebrities were among the hundreds taking part in the World’s Big Sleep Out in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff.
Organisers were expecting more than 50,000 to take part globally, with other events in cities including New York, Brisbane and Dublin.
The initiative hopes to raise around £38m ($50m) for homelessness charities.
In London’s Trafalgar Square, those camping out faced temperatures of about 10C and heavy rain – conditions which supporters said rough sleepers face every day.
