Drug addicts in North Wales could be able to inject themselves in so called fix rooms in the near future.

The area's Police and Crime Commissioner says the Welsh Government's looking at the idea.

In his yearly report, Arfon Jones says giving addicts a safe place to do this could cut down on deaths linked to drug use, as well as cases of so called anti-social behaviour.

He also claims the war on drugs has been lost and he wants to work with Police to change the way officers deal with drugs.
