Exeter City Council is urging people to call the Devon and Cornwall Rough Sleeper Hotline on 0800 151 3441 if they are aware of anyone who may be at risk from the storms.


Cllr Rob Hannaford, Lead Councillor for Housing and Customer Access, said: "We have activated our Severe Weather Provision and our outreach team is currrently working with St Petrocks to identify vulnerable rough sleepers to assist with accommodation. It is likely that this situation will continue for the next couple of days.


"We are doing everything possible to identify these people but would ask that if anyone has any concerns about anyone who is in a vulnerable situation sleeping rough, particularly in places that we may not be aware of, to contact the Devon and Cornwall Rough Sleepers Line, on 0800 151 3441."
