Merseyside Police is appealing for the public to be cautious after prescription medication is believed to have been lost in St Helens.

Officers received a report at about 3.30pm yesterday (Tuesday) that the medication may have been left on a train from Preston to St Helens, or on the route from St Helens Central train station to the taxi rank in the town centre, or in a taxi.

The medication, which is in a locked wooden box, comprises Nitrazepam (45mgs), Aripiprazole, (30mgs), Zopiclone (7.5g) and two inhalers.

Enquiries into the incident are continuing.

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

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