The cost of buying a single heroin pill, the most popular heroin on the market, has risen from £15.99 to £23.99 in the past week, according to data from the ONS.
Key points: The cheapest heroin available on the drug market has risen to £20.00 from £14.99A price hike on the Heroin Act is in place across the UKDrugs are cheaper than ever, says a new report from the National Centre for Social and Economic Modelling.
The National Centre on Substance Abuse and the Misuse of Drugs (NCSEM) and the Centre for Economic Policy Research (CEPR) report found the average price of a single dose of heroin has risen by almost a third in the last six months to reach £20 on Friday.
The rise was particularly noticeable in London and Manchester, where prices have risen by more than 20 per cent.
It also affected the north-east of England, with prices rising by 16 per cent in Bristol, 13 per cent at Birmingham, 14 per cent across London and 16 per a per cent from Norwich to Liverpool.
Experts warn that it could cause an economic crash, particularly in the north of England.
“The supply of supply will be limited, and the price will be high because of the high demand,” Professor Jonathan Wood, a criminologist from the University of Manchester, told the BBC.
“The price will therefore rise sharply, and we’re seeing an increase in the price of heroin.
We are seeing a significant rise in the demand for the drug.”‘
Heroin is a cheap drug’A new report released on Thursday by the Centre on Drug Policy and Criminal Justice at the University’s Institute of Public Policy and Criminology, which is a joint initiative between the ONC, CEPR and NCSO, found the price increase was mainly driven by the availability of cheaper versions.
According to the report, the cheapest available heroin costs just £20 in the country.
Dr Peter Rea, a GP at a London hospital, said: “It’s very easy to get heroin from the streets.”
We have a very low amount of supply.
There’s no real reason why you wouldn’t be able to get it for under £10, and you can get it pretty cheaply.
“People have to have access to it, so it’s an easy way to get your hands on the cheap stuff.”
The latest figures suggest the UK is on track to hit an all-time high in heroin use.
The ONS said heroin use has been on the rise since the introduction of the Heroicence Act in 2015.
But the latest figures, released on Wednesday, suggest the number of people who use the drug has continued to rise in recent years, even as overall use of the drug is on the decline.
Professor Wood said heroin was a cheaper drug than other drugs.
He said: ”If you think about it, we don’t have a choice.
We can either spend more money on the police and prisons, or we can spend less money on them.
Drugs like heroin are a cheap, convenient, easy-to-get drug.
It’s easy to buy, it’s easy for someone to buy it, and it’s cheap.
That’s why it’s such a popular drug for people.
“He added: “There is a real fear that this increase in prices could cause the UK economy to crash because it could drive people into other drugs and the criminal justice system.
