The number of people sleeping in tents in Dublin has risen by almost 30% in the past 5 months.

That's according to Inner City Helping Homeless which has lined dozens of tents up outside Dublin City Council offices this morning to highlight the issue.

On Monday night, Inner City Helping Homeless recorded 238 people sleeping rough in Dublin, the highest number ever recorded.

The charity says that 45% of those that sleep rough, stay in tents, because many feel it's safer than a hostel.

ICHH says that the number of people sleeping in tents has risen by 28% in the past 5 months, the charity says that a multi approach is needed to help rough sleepers including drug rehab facilities and mental health programmes.
