Polish charity workers arrive to take migrants home
07.09.06 London Evening Standard
Polish charity workers have arrived in Britain to help send home hundreds of their countrymen who are living rough on the streets of London having failed to find jobs.
The Polish aid volunteers were invited by UK homeless charities who admit they cannot cope with the influx of east European migrants - whose dreams of a better life in Britain have turned sour.
The number of homeless people sleeping rough in central London has doubled in a year, and charity bosses claim similar problems are starting to emerge in other towns and cities - prompting fears that desperate migrants will drift into begging, prostitution or petty crime.
