Housing charity Shelter has put together four sets of official 2016 data to come up with a total of 254,514 homeless people in England.  Apart from London, there are black spots in Birmingham, Brighton and Luton.

The data Shelter aggregated came from the statistics on rough sleepers, those in temporary accommodation, people housed in hostels and people waiting to be housed by council social services departments.

The map below illustrates homeless people as a proportion of the local population in England’s local authorities (council areas).
