Residents of the Chord Road area say the situation with antisocial behaviour and public drug-taking near their houses has reached a crisis point.

Some people are now living in fear in their own homes, with users shooting up in broad-daylight on steps and lanes beside their houses, and drug paraphernalia posing a serious health risk.
