Home Secretary Jack Straw has launched a new anti-drugs and crime intiative aimed at housing estates in Camden and Islington, the Ham & High reports(p14).

Gospel Oak in Camden and Tollington Estate in Islington have been shown to have the highest incidence of drug mis-use in the country and in recent years crime worth£75 million has been committed by heroin users in the area.

The Young People, Drugs and Crime Initiative, which is partly funded through money from the Government's Single Regeneration Budget, will bring together communities, councils and voluntary agencies to find solutions.
