Coventry drugs advice up in smoke

    Coventry Community Safety Partnership has destroyed 5,000 copies of
    a leaflet produced using £10,000 of Department of Health
    funding because it gave inappropriate information about
    drugs.

    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”.
