Today, in a public place - I don't wish to elaborate where - some young (8 or 9 year olds) drew our attention to a pile of discarded needles.
East Lothian Council's Anti-Social Behaviour Team were brilliant though and despatched a crew to deal with it.
Telephone 0845 601 8518 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have similar problems.
I'm sure grownups know not to touch any needles they find but I wonder if they have given their kids similar advice? The kids I met today were picking them up.
