30 people slept rough during the freezing conditions in Dublin last night.

The Peter McVerry Trust says that they were offered help but refused beds.

Homeless charities are reporting a big increase in demand for their services during the cold snap.

Peter McVerry reps say 106 beds were allocated at a sports centre in Dublin's South Inner City, an increase on 81 on the night before.

You can help by letting homeless charities know if you see someone sleeping rough:
