There has been another rise in the number of homeless people.

The Department of Housing says 9,968 people in emergency accommodation last month.

That includes 3,811 children.

The overall figure marks an increase of 244 people compared to October.

The Housing Minister Eoghan Murphy has described the increase as "anticipated", as rough sleepers are moved into temporary beds for winter.

He admitted it's "very disappointing" to see more children in emergency accommodation during Christmas week.

Charities like Focus Ireland say the government is not taking the necessary action to get to grips with the problem.
