Councillor Ruane said, “While I understand the concern and frustration people feel about this matter I would urge them to share any information they might have on drug dealing in the area with the PSNI, rather than cause both distress and expense to the person whose wall is used in this way. He added, “Ensuring the police have the information they need to take action against drug dealers is the only way to get an effective solution to what is a very serious problem for many communities today.”
