Huge stash of drugs paraphernalia found on Ipswich litter pick

Litter pickers in Suffolk have spoken of their shock at finding drugs paraphernalia at an organised event in Ipswich.

Volunteers had been trawling the area for rubbish around the Waterfront and Cardinal Park area on Saturday.

Jason Alexander, founder of the Rubbish Walks organisation, posted pictures online of syringes and other drug equipment, saying it was the 'biggest stash' he'd ever seen at such an event.

The volunteers also found a catheter bag in the park.

Mr Alexander called Ipswich Borough Council's Cleaner Ipswich Hotline to clear up the mess and advises anyone else who finds drugs paraphernalia in the area to do the same.
