Mother shocked by needles found in restaurant

The Argus: Sarah Crouch, 34, and daughter Becky Sarah Crouch, 34, and daughter Becky

A MUM was horrified when her two-year-old daughter found a needle bin for drug users in a restaurant toilet.

Sarah Crouch, 34, was at the London Road branch of KFC in Brighton when her two year old daughter Rebecca found the “sharps bin”, used to dispose of hypodermic needles.

She said: “My daughter was bending down touching a box and I realised it was a sharps box used by heroin users.

“The people who use them can have any sorts of germs and diseases.”

She added: “You don’t have something like that in a family restaurant.

“At the end of the day, it could have been so much worse.

“My little girl has been traumatised by the event and I’m pregnant so my hormones are going crazy.”

Mrs Crouch, a full-time carer from Brighton, said the manager told her the bin had been placed in the toilet to provide a service to the community.

A complaint was also made to Brighton and Hove City Council about the bin.

CRI, the social care and health charity, run a needle exchange scheme on London Road as part of their harm reduction service.

Mike Byrne, operations manager for CRI, said: “I don’t think you would see many sharps bins in public places at all.

“You would think the last thing that KFC would want to do is to attract people who are going to use drugs.”

A spokesperson for KFC said that it is not their policy to provide sharps bins and they will be working with the restaurant on London Road to provide “alternative ways” to deal with any issues they are experiencing.

A Brighton and Hove City Council spokesman said: “Council officers visited the owner today, who had already removed the sharps box in response to the customer complaint.

“The owner is planning alternative methods to ensure safe conditions and hopes to install a key pad entry system for the toilets.

“Our Community Safety Team has also made contact with the owner to offer ongoing advice and further support.”

To even think that something like this is being normalised shows how far down the slippery slope Brighton has gone.
This is an absolute disgrace and the place should be closed immediately.

Sharps bins are a responsible way to dispose of needles, but should not be left in areas that are easily accessible.
It's probably done with the best of intentions, and it's not really 'traumatic' unless you have a woman screaming at their daughter not to touch it due to them over-reacting.
It would probably have been enough to have mentioned it to the manager, or contacted the responsible agency providing it (there should be a number on the box).
Of course, getting your name and photo on a news story is much more productive, and as mentioned, you can probably push to get a payout too if you're clever.

would she rater the needles get left on the floor? and be more of a risk to the public. while its not ideal to have a sharps bin in the toilets in this location but lets face up to the facts that the london road / level area does have a big problem with drugs. i have seen several people injecting in the area and then just throwing the needle on the floor to pose a bigger risk to people at least KFC is trying to protect its customers by putting this in the toilets. Locking the toilets up is not an option as the people who use in toilets will just ask for the key/code and still shoot up. the sharps bin is a small one and does not pose as much of a risk to people unlike a discarded needle in the street/bin or park.

What would you expect in London Rd?
KFC + London Rd - not exactly high class.
Anyway, better to have these bins than the drug users throwing their needles away in the ground where they are a danger. I would much rather proper bins so people can inject in safety and dispose of the needle safely.
These bins are essential - but KFC isn't the right place for one. There's a Sainsburys along there which may be better. As long as food isnt prepared on the premises. Costa Coffee not really suitable either.

There are a lot of people - not just illegal drug takers - who inject daily or more. I am one - I'm a type 1 diabetic and have to inject many times a day so a sharps bin is very welcome to me - not seen or heard of any of these anywhere else before but I'm glad to see that they are being provided.

It's a shame that diabetics have to quietly suffer and get nothing done for them until illegal drug takers make things so bad that they get the help that is welcome to them - like getting free disposable injections. I had to use a glass and surgical steel syringe for many, many years because my parents couldn't afford to buy me syringes but then the illegal drug taking became a problem and I was very happy to one day get disposable syringes provided. They were so much better and less painful to use as the needles were slimmer.

But then this is our government for you. Who has also not stopped the production of opium poppies in Afghanistan and also the heroin supplies - makes you wonder what they are up to but then I know they are corrupt to the core.

How many people know that the British made the Chinese people opium addicts on purpose in years gone by? They don't teach you these things in your history lessons at school do they? Wonder why.

Two mistakes there. KFC is not a family restaurant (wouldn't even call it a 'restaurant' to begin with), and Brighton is not a civilised city. Eating a meal at KFC in London Road is ever so slightly more civilised than eating pig swill from a trough.

And, pray, what's wrong with providing such a bin? Their contents is not accessible as they have a very small slit, so I don't buy the "traumatised" story. In Germany (in major cities at least) they even have vending machines for disposable syringes and "shooting galleries" where addicts can inject in a reasonably clean and safe environment. Very sensible!

It's a shame that diabetics have to quietly suffer and get nothing done for them until illegal drug takers make things so bad that they get the help that is welcome to them - like getting free disposable injections. I had to use a glass and surgical steel syringe for many, many years because my parents couldn't afford to buy me syringes but then the illegal drug taking became a problem and I was very happy to one day get disposable syringes provided. They were so much better and less painful to use as the needles were slimmer.

But then this is our government for you. Who has also not stopped the production of opium poppies in Afghanistan and also the heroin supplies - makes you wonder what they are up to but then I know they are corrupt to the core.

How many people know that the British made the Chinese people opium addicts on purpose in years gone by? They don't teach you these things in your history lessons at school do they? Wonder why.
Don't diabetics get free prescriptions? Not exactly "nothing done for them" is it?

Never call the Argus with a story. Rightly or wrongly, you are hanging yourself out to dry - you may as well volunteer to be a target in a shooting gallery. I don't know if the financial compensation one gets makes it tempting - but it always seems to be a fairly unproductive move.

Or at least, if you do insist on calling the Argus, at least pull a decent face for the photographer. I nominate loads of these stories to the "Angry People in Local Papers" blog, but none of them ever gets shown. Come on, local underclass types - you're letting the side down!

If the sharps bin was locked, I do not see the problem. If it didn't lock then they need to invest in a lockable bin and the mother has a valid point. But the sad face photo and description of a traumatised child are ridiculous.

You'll be advocating putting these bins in every shop and restaurant in Brighton next! Maybe even schools.
Clean up the junkies and the bins won't be needed.

I think sharps bins should be in all toilets.
much more hygienic / safer than needles on the floor.
Good spot. She does look very big for 2 years old. Perhaps it's all the hormones/additives in KFC food.
The mother looks quite old and fat for 34 as well.
Of course she's fat...she eats in KFC with her daughter......

Sharps bins can be considered as good practice in accessible toilets, along with incontinence waste bins (separate from sanitary waste) for those using incontinence pads, catheter bags or with colostomies.

Plenty more people than injecting drug users need sharps bins, and it was good to see KFC considering the potential needs of its customers.

Shame that so many people have to allow their disdain for injecting drug users (who do need safe places to dispose of used needles, too!) to lobby for a change that will roll back accessibility of the public sphere for those who need to self inject to manage medical conditions.

Well move then.
