THE number of Oxfordshire families being housed in temporary accommodation has risen by more than 10 per cent in the last year, new figures have revealed.

The county's Health Improvement Board had aimed to have the number no greater than that reported in March 2017 which was 161.

However, according to the recent report, as of March 31 2018 there were 180 households currently staying in temporary accommodation across Oxfordshire, seven of which were being housed in Bed and Breakfasts.
