Coventry Community Safety Partnership has destroyed 5,000 copies of
a leaflet produced using £10,000 of Department of Health

Stella Manzie, chief executive of the council, said that while some
of the advice in the leaflet was sensible, parts were “absolutely
unacceptable – in particular those parts which appeared to
encourage criminal activity”.
While the partnership had done some “fantastic work”, the leaflet
produced by the support team “completely misrepresents its views”.
