"We've made a disused bus shelter our home but it's going to be demolished"

A homeless woman says living in a bus shelter with her boyfriend and mum is safer than being put in temporary housing with drug addicts. Destiny Mitchell moved into the 3m (9.8ft) by 1m (3.2ft) glass and metal shelter in Selly Oak, Birmingham, seven months ago. The 26-year-old, who has autism, lives in the disused bus stop on Bristol Road with boyfriend Ryan, 31, and her 44-year-old mum. Destiny says the council offered them temporary accommodation but she does not want to be separated from her mum who also has autism. The trio have tried to give the graffiti-covered shelter home comforts with a carpet, drawers and even an old pair of Super Mario curtains where the timetables were once displayed.
