Merseyside Police is appealing for people to be cautious after prescription medication was lost in St Helens yesterday.

They received a report that 32 zopiclone tablets and 28 diazepam tablets had been lost in St Helens town centre or on the 32A bus as it travelled from St Helens to Moss Bank at around 11am.

Officers are reminding people that taking any medication which has not been prescribed for them can be dangerous and, in some circumstances, can prove fatal.

Anyone who finds the medication is asked to hand it in to any pharmacy or police station or call police on 101.
