Home Office and Border Agency officers were checking on Romanians and Bulgarians at Marble Arch yesterday, though increased numbers of rough sleepers are not expected at this point as their movements are not related to the lifting of working restrictions on January 1st. Some of those present in December have returned home for Christmas and indications are that they will not try to return until later in the month. As ever, we’ll keep you posted on the work being done by police, Home Office, Border Agency, council rough sleeping officers and others to tackle the impact of these individuals on our area.
