POLICE donated spare furniture to a charity which helps the homeless find somewhere to live.
The single beds, mattresses, bedside units and wardrobes were in the former hostel building at force headquarters in Aykley Heads, Durham City.
The hostel has been shut for many years and is being cleared in preparation for the redevelopment of the building.
Recently elected Police and Crime Commissioner Ron Hogg handed over the furniture to Ed Husdpith from the Cyrenians charity.
The Cyrenians run a hostel for the homeless in Plawsworth, near Chester-le-Street.
