Informing the Campfire Community every day

Bournemouth’s controversial ‘anti-homeless’ bars on benches will be removed "in the next few days", the council has said this afternoon.

Around 16,000 people had signed a petition calling on the council to remove the bars.

It comes after council bosses faced days of mounting pressure to reconsider the “hostile” stance towards the homeless community in Bournemouth.

Bournemouth-based artist Stuart Semple started a campaign to get rid of what he calls a Design Against Humanity after seeing the bars on benches in the town centre.
