Eastern Daily Press and Norwich Evening News editor David Powles spends a day with Norwich homeless charity St Martin's Housing Trust.

The growing problem of homelessness in Norwich has been well-publicised.

Walk around the streets of the city centre, especially late at night or early in the morning, and it won’t take long before you come across the heartbreaking sight of someone huddled up in a doorway, trying to bed down for the night,

But are more people having to face up to life on the streets of our city? And if so why and what is being done about it?

And what do the homeless themselves say about the problem?
