Follow our reporter live as she spends a night sleeping rough on the streets of Norwich
Norfolk's Chief Fire Officer, a group of fire cadets and Evening News reporter Lucy Wright will sleep rough for a night to learn first hand what it is like to be homeless.
Nigel Williams and other senior fire officers will join the Wymondham Fire Cadets outside The Forum in Norwich tonight.
The group will spend the evening learning about homelessness, helping at a Salvation Army soup kitchen and then sleep outside overnight.
The sleep out has been organised by group manager Richard Herrell to help teach the fire cadets more about homelessness outside the classroom.
The cadets have put together and donated 10 survival packs to St Martin's Housing Trust, a Norwich-based organisation which helps homeless people.
