Anger and upset is being expressed on social media this morning after it was reported that a homeless man had to undergo surgery for “life-changing injuries” after his tent was removed by “an industrial vehicle”. 

The man is now in a serious condition in hospital.

He was sleeping in a tent near the Grand Canal in Dublin yesterday afternoon, when it was reportedly removed by an industrial vehicle as works were carried out by Dublin City Council and Waterways Ireland.

RTÉ reports that ‘the man was admitted to St Vincent’s University Hospital, and has undergone surgery for what are described as life-changing injuries.’

Gardaí said in a statement that the tent was being removed “in an attempt to tidy the canal walk way”.

People have taken to social media to express anger and upset at what has happened.
