RESIDENTS in a Dunfermline housing estate have been left "horrified" after needles, syringes and bloodied tissues were left near a children's playpark.

A tenant from Kingdom Housing Association's Dunlin Drive development raised their concerns to the Press this week as they feared kids could be in danger.

Images sent to the Press show needles, syringes and bloodied tissues all within yards of the playpark on the estate.

The tenant, who wished to remain anonymous, said: "We have had enough. This has happened around four times now and we know the person responsible.

"Other residents, much like myself, have been horrified by it.

"There's kids at risk of picking up a disease from these needles, syringes and the tissues covered in blood.

"There's a lot of kids here and they could get anything from them. It's disgusting.

"Our concern is that this is going to happen again and it seems that Kingdom are just giving them a warning for it."

A spokesperson for Kingdom Housing Association said the individual had been spoken to with action being taken.

They said: “Kingdom Housing Association was made aware of this incident on June 23.

"One of our housing officers responded immediately, ensuring relevant authorities had been contacted to arrange immediate clean-up of the area.

"The tenant identified has been interviewed regarding this issue and appropriate action has been taken in line with our procedures."
