UGLY SCENE: Alley strewn with used syringes after suspected drugs binge

This is the scene causing discomfort among neighbours scared to think drugs users left a trail of self-destruction in their back yard.

Neighbours of West Hill Drive, off the A60 Chesterfield Road, were horrified to discover what appeared to be a hot-spot for intravenous drug use, with used syringes sprawled across the footpath backed onto by gardens, and melted plastic and foil lining the walls.

One neighbour walking along the footpath said: "It's looks to me like they've been cooking up and actually melted the tarmac.

"This kind of thing has been a problem around here for years."
