Residents angered after … ‘homeless spikes’ were … used at a city centre building have responded by covering the area with cushions and pillows.

Spikes had been installed in a sheltered area outside Pall Mall Court in Manchester city centre in an apparent bid to deter rough sleepers.

But Jennie Platt and some of her friends visited the site on Marsden Street, just off King Street, on Sunday to take a stand.

Her sons Sam, 11, and George, 10, headed down to the city centre site and bought a range of cushions and pillows to cover the area filled with spikes.

They also bought sandwiches and other snacks, with a message on a piece of cardboard reading: ‘Take a seat and have a bite to eat’.
