The serious consequences for those people who directly get mixed up with drugs is often well documented. However the human costs to individuals who unintentionally become victims, is often less discussed. When Nina called and showed me the footage of the kind of abuse she had been suffering, I knew then that we must do everything to close this drug den down. My thanks to Mandy Bishop and Howard Pothecary from North Somerset Council who liaised tirelessly with the Police supporting their action and for putting up with my pestering. Thanks also to Avon and Somerset Police’s patience with the long drawn out Court process and for initiating and pursing the action. Most importantly my thanks to Nina who had faith and stood by everyone while this action was on going. This is an excellent example of community and multi-agency working that I intend to see promoted and used right across our town.
