A picture taken by a cop in Canada claims to show the scale of the drug problem gripping the city of Vancouver.

The Vancouver Sun report on the tweet by Vancouver police superintendent Michelle Davey.

The snap, taken in a low-cost hotel room in an area of the city with a lot of drug users, claims to show that a pigeon had made a nest in a sink using just hypodermic needles, showing just how rampant drug use is in the area.

The tweet also includes the hashtag #notstaged to prove the authenticity of the image.

The Canadian city is in the grip of an drug epidemic, with over 100 people dying of overdoses in the city so far this year.
