United Kingdom

This vending machine is exclusively for homeless people

A man sleeps rough outside a shop, in central London November 20, 2008. Ministers want  to end homelessness in the capital by 2012, as part of a £200m strategy, local media reported. Homelessness minister Iain Wright said, at the annual conference of charity Crisis, that the goal of the government is to ensure that nobody is sleeping rough on the streets when the world comes to London for the Olympics in 2012, the charity said.
