Mother’s anger and horror after used needle found in Armagh housing estate

Issue to be raised when estate committee meets PSNI

An Armagh mother has told of her horror and disgust after a hypodermic needle was found in a city housing estate.

The discovery was made at the rear of houses in the Longstone area, just off the Loughgall Road.

The needle was found by a local resident who disposed of it before alerting others to be watchful.

One local resident, who asked not to be named, contacted Armagh I this afternoon and asked us to highlight the issue.

She said: “It was found out the back of my house. One of my neighbours called me over to tell me because I have three young children who play outside.”

The woman, who asked not to be named, said she would be having the issue raised at a meeting of the local estate committee, which would be meeting with the PSNI.
