Bournemouth Council's latest deterrent for homeless sleepers.<br />
<br />
A tourist resort's latest ploy to rid the town of homeless people by installing anti-rough sleeper bars on park benches has been branded 'shameful'.<br />
<br />
Numerous public benches in Bournemouth, Dorset, have been fitted with curved steel bars down the middle of them to make it physically  impossible for people to lay down.<br />
<br />
The result leaves the bench split in two with the users only be able to sit upright.<br />
<br />
Outraged locals said the bars were a 'design against humanity' and accused the town hall officials of taking an aggressive and hostile stance against vulnerable rough sleepers.
