Police are not able to do much to help provide accommodation, however, they offered to bring him back a hot drink when they next passed through.

Later in the evening, the officers were getting a drink from the Bluebell Way Spar.

A member of the night shift staff gave them several homemade sandwiches to pass on to the homeless with the drink.
