POLICE are appealing for help from the public in their search for a lost bag of prescription medicine.

The green and white Lloyds pharmacy bag, containing 36 Clozapine tablets was left at a bus stop on Hoylake Road, Moreton, near the Grange pub on Monday afternoon. But it was not reported missing until today.

The tablets could have serious side effects if taken by anyone in large quantities or by anyone other than the person they had been prescribed to.

Anyone who finds the medication should hand it in to their nearest police station, chemist, health centre or doctors surgery.
