Sinn Féin MLA Carál Ní Chuilín has expressed concern after a homeless man was found dead in Belfast City Centre on Friday morning. 

The North Belfast MLA said:

“It’s of serious concern that a homeless man was found dead in Belfast city centre this morning. 

“No one should ever have to sleep on the street, particularly in the cold weather. 

“But sadly over recent years we have seen rising levels of homelessness around the city centre and across the north.

“Homeless charities have been doing great work but it is important that the Housing Executive and statutory bodies continue providing support to people sleeping on the street.  

“My thoughts are with this man’s family and friends at this difficult time.”
