Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham becoming 'no-go areas' because of drugs gangs... just like Mexico and Brazil says the UNITED NATIONS

  • UN narcotics chief: Manchester, Birmingham and Liverpool are comparable to Brazil and Mexico for their 'no-go' areas

  • Badly managed large scale immigration fuels the problem

  • 'Drug traffickers, organised crime, drug users - they take over'

  • Celebrity use of drugs is helping to 'normalise use' in society

  • ACPO says it does 'not recognise the reference to "no go" areas in the UK'

Areas of Manchester, Liverpool and Birmingham have become 'no-go' areas where the law is losing the battle against drug traffickers and organised crime, according to the United Nations' drugs chief.

The three cities were directly compared to the drug cartels which hold sway over large parts of Brazil and Mexico by Professor Hamid Ghodse, the president of the UN’s International Narcotics Control Board (INCB).

He said the cities were trapped in 'a vicious cycle of social exclusion and drugs problems and fractured communities'.

The development of 'no-go areas' is being fuelled by threats such as social inequality, migration and celebrities normalising drug abuse, he warned, adding that helping marginalised communities with drugs problems 'must be a priority'.

He said: 'We are looking at social cohesion, the social disintegration and illegal drugs.

'In many societies around the world, whether developed or developing, there are communities within the societies which develop which become no-go areas.

'Drug traffickers, organised crime, drug users, they take over. They will get the sort of governance of those areas

"Yes, yes, and absolutely yes. There currently is no reliable screening process though and trying to not have it hijacked in some way is quite the challenge."
