Prince Wil­liam with young fan the Suf­folk area but was vis­it­ing rel­a­tives and friends in the area.

De­tec­tive Su­per­in­ten­dent Ken La­mont said: “We are con­fi­dent lo­cal peo­ple know who sup­plied this drug.

“We want young­sters and their par­ents to come for­ward.

“We be­lieve the girl had taken a new Cop at death party scene psy­choac­tive sub­stance, com­monly re­ferred to as ‘le­gal highs’. We have spo­ken to mem­bers of this group.”

The young­sters had told par­ents they were stay­ing with pals at a sleep­over – but were out par­ty­ing all night in­stead.

DS La­mont said the park is used by young­sters to con­gre­gate and con­firmed Pair watch a ri­val team PRINCE Harry finds him­self next in line to Wil­liam dur­ing a game of polo yes­ter­day – as a pal hinted he could also soon fol­low his brother into mar­ried life. For­mer US marine Kirstie En­nis seemed to con­firm she ex­pects Harry to wed lover Meghan Markle af­ter be­ing asked if she might at­tend “his up­com­ing wed­ding”. Asked if she had con­cerns about buy­ing him a gift she nod­ded be­fore say­ing: “I don’t think I’m wor­ried about the wed­ding – I’m wor­ried about the af­ter party.” Harry and his pals are well known for their carous­ing. Re­al­is­ing her slip, Kirstie said she would “plead the fifth” – a US le­gal phrase for re­fus­ing to an­swer. Kirstie, 26, got to know the prince at a Walk­ing with the Wounded char­ity event. While sources close to Harry, 32, have said an en­gage­ment may be near, Kens­ing­ton Palace is say­ing noth­ing. He first met Meghan, 35, in May last year. Harry and Wil­liam joined in the char­ity polo event in Cirences­ter, Gloucs, be­fore head­ing off to Prince Charles’s High­grove home to cel­e­brate Camilla’s 70th birth­day. empty bot­tles of spir­its, wine and beer were from the party. He said of­fi­cers had a “good idea” which drug was in­volved but did not name it.

And he warned: “There is a safe way to party and tak­ing psy­choac­tive drugs is not a safe way.

“A post mortem has yet to be con­ducted on the girl and it is not yet known if she took other drugs and al­co­hol as well.”

Lo­cal peo­ple ex­pressed sad­ness and shock in on­line posts.

One wrote: “I’ve done train­ing on le­gal highs and the amounts of il­le­gal chem­i­cals they con­tain is hor­ren­dous. just­sayno”.

An­other added: “I hope the other girls re­veal where they got the drugs from. That per­son needs to be put away.”
