Police called to anti-drugs protest outside house
Police were called to a west Belfast street after a crowd gathered in an anti-drugs protest.
It happened on Springfield Avenue at about 8pm on Tuesday.
Video footage circulated online showed that a small group of people, including women and children, had congregated holding cardboard signs with messages including, ‘Junkies not welcome’.
Another cardboard sign held by a demonstrator read: ‘Junkies out. Your drugs aren’t welcome.’
A PSNI Land Rover is visible in the background of the footage.
Inspector Andrew McConville confirmed that police attended the scene where a “crowd had gathered”.
“The crowd subsequently dispersed, peacefully,” he said in a statement.
