Homeless people are moving tombstones and sleeping inside graves at cemetery

  • Drug addicts and homeless people are sleeping in tombs in Cambridge
  • The local council is trying to stop the anti-social behavior in the cemetery

A graveyard in Cambridge, United Kingdom is reportedly being misused as a makeshift sleeping area for homeless people.

Police say some are even moving tombstones at the Mill Road cemetery to create very hard mattresses.

According to Metro, passersby have also spotted homeless people sitting in the graves while injecting themselves and drinking, and so far there has been 213 needles found at the site.

“Council officers have been working with the Friends of Mill Road Cemetery group to identify hotspots for anti-social behaviour in the cemetery, such as littering, rough sleeping and drug taking, and to draw up an action plan to tackle them,” a city council spokesman said.

“As a result of this meeting we will open up areas of the cemetery currently covered by vegetation, which could provide cover for illegal camping, drug taking or other forms of antisocial behavior.”
