10 June 2020:Natalie Collins, 59, has been living on the street in Observatory for 12 years. Along with others, she will be sleeping under the Station Road bridge during this wet period.
She feels that the City only cares about the rich. Her experience during the lockdown has been that residents were more reticent to engage with her, perhaps because they thought homeless people were more likely to have Covid-19.
Speaking about the Law Enforcement officers that took the marquees down she says: “I hope they are sleeping warm tonight”.:Photographer: Barry Christianson.
