As well as the safer neighbourhood team, Chesterfield Borough Council attended the clean-up, after the Derbyshire Times brought to light the issue in the area.

As reported yesterday, residents voiced concern about the situation - with many saying they feel 'very intimidated' while waiting for buses along the road and others expressing sadness for the individuals involved.

The safer neighbourhood team said: "If you do come across rough sleepers please encourage them to attend Pathways on Saltergate, Chesterfield for information on where they can acquire accommodation for the night."
