'Drugs fix room is like my second home'

Glasgow is planning to open the UK's first drugs consumption room and officials behind it have looked to countries like Denmark, where these facilities are already run, for inspiration. Our reporter Divya Talwar spent a day inside a fix room in Copenhagen's red light district. This film portrays the reality of illegal drug taking. It's graphic, frank and raw and includes scenes with blood and addicts injecting, which you may find difficult to watch. We're showing it to you to give an insight into the reality of fix rooms, which many want to see introduced in the UK.
