Homeless man goes

A HOMELESS man has been moved on after staying in Henley for more than two months.

Martin Allen, 45, had been sleeping in the doorway of the former Hearns shoe shop in Market Place.

Thames Valley Police said they had taken him to Windsor, where he was put in touch with a housing officer to try to help him find somewhere to live.

Mr Allen has been homeless since he was evicted from his rented home in Oxford in 2014.

He came to Henley because he said Oxford was too dangerous for him to stay and turned down offers of help from South Oxfordshire District Council.
