Homeless people under 35 are facing a serious housing shortage this Christmas after Government benefit cuts, a charity has warned.

Crisis, which is providing emergency shelter over the festive period, said 62,500 homeless adults aged between 25 and 34 received lower levels of benefit this year after the Government said they could only claim the cost of shared accommodation rather than more expensive individual flats.%VIRTUAL-SkimlinksPromo%
