Drug seizures in Derry down 50% - PSNI

The police have said drug seizures in Londonderry have fallen by more than 50%.

They told a meeting of the District Policing Partnership in Newbuildings on Thursday that the police were not receiving as much information from the public as they used to.

The Chair of the DPP, the SDLP's Thomas Conway, said they were looking at new measures.

"A number of our independent members have come forward with some good ideas.

"These ideas will encourage the public to come forward with information that will allow the PSNI to make more seizures."
