Laughing gas canisters are being found all over Abbey Wood and residents are not happy.

Barry Scott recently took to What's New in SE2 on Facebook to warn parents when taking their children to the local park.

He said: "Please be careful when taking your kids to the park behind Eynsham Drive shops as there are loads of these scattered everywhere.

"Some not used as well as a few places where people have been sick it's disgusting in a kids play area."

What is laughing gas?

Laughing gas is another name for nitrous oxide, and when inhaled it can make people feel euphoric and relaxed.

It is also illegal to sell nitrous oxide for human consumption as it can cause hallucinations and sometimes death due to a lack of oxygen.

Unfortunately teenagers are using it more and more and the increase in empty canisters is a good indication as to where they are using it.
