He said “These psychoactive substances have devastated many families and it is vital they are taken off our streets. That police in England have sized some 20kg that was destined for Portadown is a significant blow against those attempting to peddle these dangerous substances.


Progress in legislation over recent years has helped ensure action such as this can be taken, but there will always be a constant battle to stay ahead of those attempting to profit from the misery and distress these drugs cause.

I would like to congratulate all those involved in this successful operation."
