At present there are around 11 people living on the streets of the resort.

As well as taking overnight shelter in the caves, others sleep in bus shelters on the West Shore, beach shelters or in doorways.

Brenda Fogg, founder of drop-in center Hope Restored, based at Gloddaeth Church Hall, believes the problem will only get worse and is expecting a busy winter.

Badger's cafe in the Victoria Centre has joined the Weekly News's Helping Hand campaign.

During the next year 50p from every cream tea sold will be split between Hope Restored and the RNLI in Llandudno. The money will be a huge boost to Hope Restored, which is a drop-in centre in the town for the homeless.
