Metal spikes many believe have been installed to deter homeless people from sleeping in an alcove outside a block of flats in London have sparked outrage on Twitter, after pictures of the building went viral.
Andrew Horton, 33, of Woking, Surrey, took a picture of the studs outside of the block of privately-owned flats on Southwark Bridge Road in the borough of Southwark as he walked to work on Wednesday.
Mr Horton told The Telegraph he believed the studs have been put in place to prevent homeless people from sleeping there.
“I can’t say for certain but it certainly looked like they were placed there to deter homeless people. It’s dreadful.”
