Dublin City Council says it'll redistribute coats it collected from the Ha'penny Bridge through its homeless services.

Videos emerged on social media yesterday showing a council worker collecting the jackets that were left out for rough sleepers as part of the #warmforwinter campaign.

The local authority says the clothing had to be taken off the bridge for health and safety reasons.

It said people who wish to donate coats to the homeless in the future bring them to charity shops instead.

Inner City Helping Homeless spokesperson Brian McLoughlin says there's a huge demand for winter wear especially at this time of year
