Over 11,000 Northern Ireland households presented as homeless in just eight months last year, new figures show.

Between April and December 2020, 11,628 households were considered homeless, including more than 3,000 families, 1,200 pensioners and 6,548 individuals.

SDLP councillor Paul McCusker said the figures highlight the need to ensure families and individuals do not get caught up in the cycle of homelessness.
