Boy hurt after park needle find

Parents are being warned not to allow their children to pick things up in Jersey People's Park after a boy was hurt by a discarded needle.

The boy is hospital tests after picking up the needle, which St Helier parish authorities believe was left behind by a drug user.

Municipal Services Director Tony Andrews said police were to be sent out at night to clamp down on the problem.

He said the parish would take action against anyone dropping needles.
