Butetown: A community fighting back against drugs

Within walking distance of the National Assembly for Wales, a community is rallying together to fight a growing drug problem.

In Butetown, Cardiff, residents are taking action after reporting seeing heroin being openly injected in the streets and children playing with needles dumped in parks.

After strong local opposition to the opening of a clinic just metres from a primary school, the local health board and council reversed their plans.

But with the issues not going away, local residents are working together to try and stop the drug dealers.
