Liverpool police have issued a health warning after a 50-year-old woman died and five others received emergency treatment after overdosing on heroin on Friday. Inspector Greg Tetley believes this is due to a "bad batch" of heroin. He said the particular batch is "causing people to unwillingly overdose". "If you are unsure or concerned, I'd urge you to seek medical treatment," he said.
Bashed at home
Police are appealing for information after an elderly man was left in a critical condition after a break-and-enter at Moorebank on Monday. The man, 78, and his wife returned home to find an unknown man in the house at 12.05pm. When the woman left the room and returned, she found her husband on the floor. The man was taken to Liverpool Hospital. Police seek a man described as being in his 50s, and of skinny build. He was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans.
Slow down to 40km/h
Green Valley police will target school zones during the school term. They will patrol 35 local school zones to enforce laws about speed, seatbelts, mobile phones usage and parking offences. School zones impose a 40km/h speed limit on roads near schools from 8am to 9.30am and 2.30pm to 4.30pm on school days. Police said there were 33 collisions reported within the Green Valley command last year, with 12 resulting in injuries. Police also urge parents and guardians to remind their children about road and pedestrian safety.
