A Sheffield resident has raised the alarm about used needles and signs of drug use near to a nursery.

Anthony Cunningham took photographs of discarded, used needles and other drug paraphernalia near Park Hill flats which he says is also close to a nursery site.

He said: “My morning walk on Park Hill. Got to love it when they’ve got the biggest crack den near a nursery. We need a new approach to drugs use.

“The drug use will only get worse because how can you control something that’s easier to get hold of than grabbing a takeaway burger?”
