Shocking eye-witness footage shows two young people appearing to smoke heroin on a busy city street.

The footage shows two young people crouched in a doorway on Drury Street.

The male eyewitness, who does not wish to be named, told that these instances are becoming a "daily occurrence".

"I work in the city centre. I see this every day".

He said that he spotted the young couple in the doorway with a large Animal bar and thought they were eating chocolate until he took a second look.

"They only wanted the animal bar for the tinfoil. Most bars have gotten rid of tinfoil but the Animal bar still has it".

"They produced a little ball of heroin... smoking it right there in broad daylight, oblivious to tourists, everything!"

"They were so brazen... so detached, for such young people".

He said that the city's drug problem is "getting worse".

"I feel sorry for the guards, their hands are tied".

"There's nothing to be done... I wouldn't want to be searching somebody with the fear of getting pricked by a needle... it's not fair on the guards".
