CAN any of your readers throw any light on the rumour which is circulating in the Whitecross Road area that one of the drug and alcohol rehabilitation companies operating in Weston is about to relocate their counselling services to a large property in Whitecross Road?The rumour goes 30 or more rehabilitees would be visiting these premises on a daily basis. Is this fact or fiction? At present this area has relatively few problems and is a very nice place to live. I fear this will change if these addicts, many of whom have criminal records and are drawn from all over the country, are coming to this area.It must be stopped at all costs.MICHAEL PALMERClifton Road, Weston
