Homeless Man Living At Heathrow Airport Still Has Nowhere To Go

Homeless man living at Heathrow Airport still has nowhere to go
A homeless man with disabilities could be sleeping in his wheelchair on the streets tonight, after allegedly being repeatedly turned away by the council amid the coronavirus lockdown.
Paul Atherton, 52, has been homeless for 10 years and has been sleeping in Heathrow Airport’s Terminal 5 on and off for the last two.
But as the building is cleared of non-essential staff and members of the public in a bid to combat the spread of Covid-19, he is now facing the dilemma of not having a roof over his head tonight.
The government asked local authorities in England to house all rough sleepers and those sleeping in hostels and night shelters by the weekend.
However, Paul, who suffers with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), said he has been desperately trying with no success to get help from Westminster Council.
He told Metro.co.uk: ‘It’s looking like I’m sleeping on Trafalgar Square in my wheelchair unless anything happens’.
