Melbourne's North Richmond in grips of a 'heroin crisis'

Little kids find bodies on the way to school, the gutters are lined with syringes and silver spoons and drug users shoot up in alleys behind Vietnamese restaurants. Welcome to 'Zombieland' – what some locals call the grungy inner Melbourne suburb of North Richmond while in the grip of Victoria's heroin crisis. Overdoses are soaring, users (pictured main, top inset) are sprawled on the ground between cars in a housing estate carpark and it's impossible to miss the dealers loitering by Tram Stop 20. Fed up with death on their doorstep, locals are demanding a medically supervised injection centre, like the long-standing facility in Sydney's Kings Cross. But the state government isn't interested, last week ruling out building the room which many local activists are clamouring for. 'This is insane. This is Melbourne,' said local activist Judy Ryan.  'People are dying on the streets. We wouldn't put up with this anywhere else'. Pictured left, a memorial for Sam O'Donnell, 27, who died from a heroin overdose in a Richmond alleyway. Right: police speak to a man on a notorious street corner.
