image for Study finds homeless people took home £3 million in bonuses last year

Research has found that many of the UK's homeless people are more well-off than previously thought. Despite collecting just pennies in their day job filling our streets, some them took home as much as £3 million in their end of year bonuses.

"Many homeless people commute from their expensive mansions in the home counties to other parts of the country and dirty themselves up to make them look downtrodden". Said financial expert Alex Baumgarter. "They may seem broke, but if you inspect them closer a lot of their rags are designer clothes."

It was also revealed recently that famous millionaires such as Richard Branson and Bill Gates often grace the streets in homeless attire to make extra money on the side. "Its a smart way to avoid tax" said a smiling Branson.
