Later in their patrols the PCSO and CSAS officers spoke to and supported a number of homeless people by passing their details onto the local charities to help get them housing.

A spokesperson for Bournemouth Police said: “Lastly we supported a few local stalls and protests to remain peaceful and to still have their say on what they are passionate about.”
