Caption: France Residence: Avenue des Champs Elysées, Paris. Bedding belonging to homeless people is set out to dry, on the Champs Elysées in Paris. Up to 30,000 people sleep on the streets in Paris – a hard core of over 10,000 habitual rough-sleepers, with the rest made up of people spending a night or two on the streets for more transitory reasons.
