We are very concerned about what is going to happen to us in the Barbican tonight

This is a follow-up from the previous blog, "Hospital refuses to put in writing that Declan was diagnosed on 14 April with asthma and a chest infection":

33.     Both the applicant and his wife are deeply concerned that the accommodation blockade through surveillance that they have experienced in London and in Brighton for near on two years has now been extended to beyond the close of the WLCHC winter night shelters on 13 April 2014; especially, since the applicant has been diagnosed with asthma, which is a chronic, or life long, disease that can be serious – even life threatening. They have been threatened with hosings by street cleaners, serious assault and/or incarceration for rough sleeping in the Barbican estate, which is owned by the City of London (public property), for want of a place to safely sleep following the fencing off of their previous sleeping pitch in December 2013. For example, on 31 December, before the WLCHC night shelters opened, someone ran a bucket of water across a stairs above their heads as soon as they had bedded down. The following is an extract from the N4CM blog of 1 January 2014 under the title, “Declan calls into Bishopsgate Police Station for a crime intel report”:
We are concerned about what’s on the menu for tonight, so this morning we went to Bishopsgate Police Station where I showed PC 960CP all the photos I had taken. According to this police officer, there was no crime because the drenching could have been done by City of London street cleaners. In fact, he added, we should expect them every night from now on. He found our situation so hilarious that Declan told him as we were leaving that I would mention it in my blog, to which he replied, “Please do.”

So much for "alternative remedies" to prevent us from becoming street homeless again on 14 April:
