Homeless claims rise in Wales for second year in row

The number of people in Wales claiming help for homelessness has gone up for the second year running.

Figures show more than 19,000 people said they had nowhere to live, a rise of about 27% on the previous year.

The Welsh government says it aims to address the issue with the forthcoming housing bill.

However, charities and housing experts say the plans may not go far enough.
