This month, people are being encouraged to post pictures of themselves sleeping in weird places in a bid to raise money to tackle homelessness.

Shelter from the Storm, based in Islington, is encouraging social media users to take a photograph of themselves or their friends sleeping in ‘weird and wonderful places’.

The charity says: “It costs just £10 a night to support 1 homeless guest, Let’s make this Winter the warmest ever!”

Thousands of people – including ITV News presenters Alastair Stewart and Mary Nightingale – have already posted their images in support of the campaign.
