    Metal studs installed to stop homeless people from sleeping outside private
    flats in London have been described as “brutal” by a homelessness charity.

    Residents at the block on Southwark Bridge Road said they appeared a few
    weeks ago after someone had been sleeping rough there.

    In reaction, Howard Sinclair, Chief Executive of St Mungo’s Broadway, said:
    “Each year our teams, in Southwark and elsewhere, help thousands of people
    off the streets.

    “Part of their role is to prevent people adopting a street lifestyle which,
    on occasions, means adapting the physical environment to prevent people
    sleeping rough in a particular location on a regular basis. These ‘studs’
    appear a rather brutal way of doing just that.”

    Mayor of London Boris Johnson has called for the developer to remove these
    spikes ASAP. Personally speaking I believe these spikes are a) possibly a
    tripping hazard especially to young children and the blind or partially
    sighted and b) a danger to wheelchair users as they manouvre in the space
    .

    Typical English superciliousness.
