The city says the measures are brought into force when daytime temperatures may not rise above zero and night time is below zero for several nights in a row.

Shelters are open earlier. There are 230 places available throughout the city – some are for women only.

A hot meal is available as well as breakfast and people can take a shower.

Anyone who’s concerned about a homeless person can call on 022 427 88 00 24 hours a day and a team will go and check on them.
