Homeless shelter removed from street by Belfast City Council

A sleeping shelter that appeared on a street in Belfast city centre last week has been removed.

The wooden box, which was left as a place for homeless people to sleep in, was taken away by Belfast City Council this morning.

The council says the box, which did not have planning permission, was removed to ensure the health and safety of people using it.

BBC News NI's Michael Fitzpatrick reports.
