An unexpected large fog that enveloped Parkhead, Derrybeg and Barcroft last night was just people smoking weed the PSNI have confirmed.
The Police were called as safety for drivers became a real concern as visibility was reduced to a millimetre in front of your nose.
A PSNI spokesman told Newry Spud:
“We would like to assure the local community that there was no low lying fog as first suspected. It was in fact dope smoking enthusiasts in Newry who were enjoying a fresh new batch that has been brought into the area recently.
We would call for calm at this time and for people to remain indoors from 8pm to 8am when the plumes of dope smoke are at their highest.”
