A report produced by the Churches National Housing Coalition reveals that Oxford has fared badly compared with the 17 other towns and cities in the study, reports BBC Oxford.

The report, People Need Homes, was launched by the Bishop of Oxford, Richard Harries, who said it showed people had misconceptions about what kind of areas had the greatest housing need.

He commented: 'The housing need in Oxford is stark and extensive. We tend to think the greatest housing need lies in the London boroughs, for example, but this survey shows that on many indicators the housing need in Oxford is worse than any London borough - or certainly in the first two or three of the London boroughs.

'For instance, the number of people in temporary accommodation, the number of people in bed and breakfast is as bad as any London borough'.
