FIGURES FOR England and Wales, released by the Ministry for Housing Communities and Local Government, show a 15% increase in rough sleeping from 2016.
The chief executive of Crisis charity, Jon Sparkes said: "It is truly a catastrophe that in a country as prosperous as this, more and more people are finding themselves forced to sleep in risky and freezing conditions, when we have evidence to show how the situation could be turned around".
The figures, based on snapshot street counts and paper estimates by local authorities, show that London, where figures rose by 18%, remains the centre of rough sleeping, accounting for almost a quarter of all rough sleepers.
This was an increase of 617 on the position a year earlier, equivalent to 15%, of which 173 additional rough sleepers were in London and 444 elsewhere.

Shelter CEO, Polly Neate, commented: "Most of these people are homeless simply because they couldn't afford to live anywhere, a situation made worse by welfare cuts".
"The strategy sets out our ambitious plans for meeting housing need, preventing homelessness and meeting the needs of vulnerable people in the next three years". These numbers are snapshot counts and estimates but the most accurate we have to work with to inform local and national action.
"Services like StreetLink and No Second Night Out are helping people newly rough sleeping to move away from the streets quickly".
