Rough sleepers are four times more likely to die from unnatural causes such as accidents, assaults, murder, drug or alcohol poisoning.

Homeless charity Crisis say rough sleepers are 13 times more likely to be the victim of violence. Ten homeless people have been murdered in the last 13 years in Brighton and Hove.

Mark has been on the streets for more than 20 years and says despite the danger, living on the streets is now a hard habit to break.
