Four children sent to hospital after finding needles in play area14/04/2012 - 12:55:40
Four young children have been treated in hospital after they found hypodermic needles in a play area in east Belfast.
The children discovered the syringes near Connswater shopping centre last night.
They were given anti-hepatitis vaccines in hospital.
The father of one of the children was in contact with Ulster Unionist MLA Michael Copeland early this morning.
"If I understood them correctly, some of them actually pricked themselves or injured themselves with these objects," said Mr Copeland.
