Increased activity – drugs

In recent weeks many residents have noticed considerable drug dealing activity in the square and neighbouring streets.

STAR streets have been the subject of drugs raids. In one incident, one of our members’ houses was inappropriately entered by the police. The Residents Association is deeply concerned about the random nature of the entry, whilst supporting a much-needed focus on drugs in the area.
