A tour bus that transported Tinie Tempah, David Guetta and Sam Smith is being turned into a mobile homeless shelter in Manchester. Sid Williams and his charity Embassy Bus hope the bus will provide emergency shelter and support. Critics are concerned about people who have experienced complex trauma or have support needs being confined to small spaces in the bus. But mayor Andy Burnham supports the idea, as part of his target to eradicate rough sleeping in Manchester by 2020. About 500 people sleep rough in the city regularly, which is a ten-fold increase since 2010.
