Editor's Viewpoint: Increasing scourge of drugs on streets of Belfast not only damaging for the addicts, but also for our city's reputation 

A couple suspected of being under the influence of drugs sit unconscious in a Belfast city centre building society while their child lies unheeded in its pram. Not far away, at a fast food outlet, a drug deal is believed to be taking place. Both incidents are captured on social media. Elsewhere in the city centre, discarded needles or drug wraps litter a side street.
