BRIGHTON and Hove Council has criticised Eastbourne MP Caroline Ansell in the ongoing homeless row.

Brighton is placing more homeless and vulnerable people in Eastbourne hotels.

Our MP and Your Bid both say this is unacceptable.

David Gibson is joint chair of Brighton’s housing committee.

He told BBC Radio Sussex this morning that Brighton is having to do this because of the high demand.

He said it would only be sorted if the root problems of homelessness are tackled.

And he said Eastbourne MP Caroline Ansell should talk to her Ministers at central government about the extent of the problem and ways to tackle it, rather than moan about what Brighton is doing.
