Recently the Council Community Support Team have had several reports of Nitrous Oxide canisters being discarded in public areas around Poynton, in particular around Marley Road and Chester Road.

The CCST warn that it appears to be a growing trend amongst young people who refer to Nitrous Oxide as ‘laughing gas’ and many teens and parents are naïve regarding the dangerous and occasionally lethal effects of inhaling the substance. The CCST say “Be aware that this type of activity is happening in Poynton. Do you know what your children are doing this evening”?
