London, December 14: Various gangs in Europe posing as penniless vagrants make an astounding 700 pounds a week, while raking in 50,000 pounds per year, it has been revealed.
According to a police analysis, the beggars target sympathetic shoppers and then sleep in plush hotels and travel everywhere by taxi with the heavy income that they have, the Daily Express reported.
The analysis also said that this problem of scrounging is likely to worsen with tens of thousands of Bulgarians and Romanians coming in just over a fortnight's time.
A source from Westminster City Council source has revealed that people are extremely worried that Britain could become the begging capital of Europe and their major concern is that they don't want London to become like Paris. (ANI)
