Syringes, vials and needles found scattered across Ballywillan Road

1 Mins read

Police received a report on Saturday morning that a large quantity of syringes, vials and needles had been scattered on the road, in hedges and across a field on Ballywillan Road in Portrush, near the cemetery.

Officers attended and contacted the council who were able to arrange for a specialist team to attend and clear the items.

A PSNI Spokesperson said: “While it cannot be determined if these items had been used with illegal drugs, the fact that someone discarded them recklessly without concern for the health or safety of the local community is absolutely sickening.”

“Such items are extremely dangerous, especially to younger children who may not be aware of what they have found and we would like to remind those who use needles of the risks to others they could cause by discarding them so wantonly.2
