Homelessness escalates in Britain

Homelessness in one of the richest country's in the world is on the rise. More and more people in Britain are now relying on the state and charities for a roof over their heads.
In the second quarter of this year, around 9, 000 homes were repossessed in Britain. Interest rates here are low at the moment.
But, there are fears that when they do eventually rise, more families will struggle. And more will end up turning to the authorities to help provide a roof over their heads.
