ROYAL CANAL FLOODED INTENTIONALLY TO STOP HOMELESS SLEEPING NEARBY

It’s emerged a bridge at the Royal Canal in Dublin has been flooded to discourage homeless people from using it.

Rough sleepers use Binns Bridge on Dorset Street for shelter and somewhere to stay.

Waterways Ireland is defending raising the water level – saying it’s to prevent drug use and public defecation.

But homeless volunteer Padhraic Drommond says it’s inhumane.
