The man was sleeping outside in temperatures reaching almost -1C [Image: Axiom RM].

What did David Gauke admit to Andrew Marr on Sunday? A 134 per cent rise in rough sleeping since 2010.

And he said the Tories wanted to halve this by 2022 and eliminate it altogether by 2027.

This Writer suggested that this would be done by allowing the homeless to die, rather than by lifting a finger to help.

It seems I was right.

A homeless man has been found dead near a city centre shopping centre after sleeping rough in freezing temperatures.

The man died after bedding down for the night on Saturday outside Wagamama’s near the Bullring in Birmingham.

The rough sleeper had been with a fellow homeless man but had failed to wake up shortly before 9am on Sunday.

Concern has previously been expressed among charity and outreach workers over rough sleepers equipped only with cheap blankets and sleeping bags.
