A new mobile harm reduction unit has been launched in Dublin.
It will operate four times a week and provide sterile equipment such as needles and crack pipes.
The 'Vana Liffey' launched on International Overdose Awareness Day and aims to reduce the risk of drug related harms.

Our reporter Josh Crosbie met with The Ana Liffey Drug Project which is behind the initiative and spoke with those who use the service.
