By Shannon Walsh

This weekend, thousands of people will make their way to Windsor, England for the Royal Wedding. With the influx of wedding-goers, however, comes the removal of homeless people. According to CNN, reports have surfaced that say people's belongings had to be removed by police and "stored securely over the weekend". The public has flocked to social media to share their outrage.

Local police, however, say that there has been no forceful removal of any homeless persons. Melanie Adams, a spokeswoman for Thames Valley Police, tells CNN, "It's all voluntary. Homeless people are not being targeted." She added that those with large items are considered a security risk- so those items are what needs to be removed.
