Walking through Cambridge today I noticed that there are more people wrapped in blankets/sleeping bags begging than I have seen for a few years.

Around 10 years ago the police in Cambridge cracked down on people begging and pretty much drove them all out of town. Hardly ever seeing a policeman/policewoman on patrol I am guessing is the reason for seeing more people begging.

One thing that strikes me is that all the people I see begging appear to have mental health issues and it is quite sad to see them out in the open with nothing but their sleeping bags as possessions talking to themselves - I do however occasionally see someone talking to them and I passed one man who had a pasty and cup of coffee, that I take someone had bought for him, so it is good that they are not completely invisible.
