Ken, Neil, Raymond, Penny and Alison, have made a film where they interview glue sniffing teenagers from Tyneside about their glue snogging habits. The film will be launched by The House of Commons to raise awareness of this social problem.
Local reaction has not been good, as Mr Denis O'Connor, who runs a Newcastle clinic for glue sniffers said the project was misguided. The film was directed by a small number of unemployed Gateshead teenagers, most of whom have tried the habit themselves.
