CONCERN has been expressed after reports of syringes being found in the area of Ballymena’s Doury Road estate.
It has been reported that needles have been spotted at the Dunclug College end of the estate.
It is understood a man out walking with his daughter made the grim discovery.
The public are being urged to be on their alert for fears that the needles may have been used by drug users.
Independent councillor Rodney Quigley said: “There is no need in this day and age for such things to be happening”.
