SCORES of locals will be sleeping rough on Friday night for an event at The Metrodome that's been organised to raise awareness of homelessness.

The Big Sleepout - run by children's charity Safe@Last - is being held on October 28 to give adults and children an idea of what it is like to sleep rough and people will be sleeping out on the car park.

A spokesman said: "One of the main aims of the event is to highlight what it is like for a child who has run away to sleep rough, therefore luxuries such as tents, camp beds are not permitted."

Safe@Last works across South Yorkshire, helping children and young people at risk of running away.

What about young adults who cannot afford high rents and also end up on the streets? Why are there no means to help them?
