On Sat. am I was walking down a pedestrianised street towards a busy road. I could see some young person at the end of the street wandering about very unsteady. When I got there it was a girl, about 16 . She seemed v. anxious and was crying and shaking. Flimsy clothing. I spoke to her and said she should go home, it was too cold to be out dressed like that. She asked me if I smoked, which I don't. She started crying again. It wasn't alcohol.
I didn't have my phone on me but was debating whether to go into a shop and asking them to ring 999. Or whether that would make things worse.
Then a police car came up and 2 policeman made a dash for her as she'd done a runner when she saw them. Someone else must have seen and reported.
The poor girl - I suppose it was some kind of drug, but what else was she being subjected to?
And what can the police do?
