Here’s my report based on an interview with a man from south Cumbria who had chained himself to fencing outside Carlisle City Council’s headquarters as a protest.
He told me his major criticisms of the local authority saying that it had neglected to repair and reopen one of the city’s main homeless hostels following the 2015 winter floods, leaving him homeless.
The council told me that it was close to reopening John Street Hostel and its website says the building will reopen in September 2017.
In response, @CarlisleCC says it's close to finishing work on John Street hostel and that it has, and will continue, to support the man.
