TfL is aware of this issue and is currently working with Westminster City Council, the Metropolitan Police Service and other partners on the most effective ways to reduce rough sleeping in this area.

TfL has a strong track record of working with outreach teams and homeless charities to provide assistance to rough sleepers who seek refuge on the transport system, and will do so again in this situation.
