Cllr Warren Ward: The selling of drugs to vulnerable young people is a new low for our community.
Cllr Warren Ward releases statement on the recent incident at New Ferry Park, involving the selling of ecstasy to a 14 year-old austisic Young person.
The selling of drugs to vulnerable young people is a new low for our community.
New Ferry Park should be a place to feel safe and for families to enjoy – It is completely unacceptable for it be used as a place for young people to sell drugs.
There has been a substantial amount of issues in New Ferry Park involving young people causing Anti-Social Behaviour. It is clear that these issues are escalating rapidly.
I am in the process of contacting the local neighbourhood police inspector as well as the cabinet members for neighbourhoods & public health to ask for more to be done to tackle this issue.
I also want to extend my support to the parents of the young 14 year old and ask that they get in touch with me to discuss this further.
I urge any young person or local resident with information to contact police on 101.
