New Pink pill is killer, say po­lice

Midweek Sport - - IN THIS WEEK'S SENSATIONAL -

CLUB­BERS have been warned to avoid a party drug called “Pink Love”.

Po­lice have is­sued the warn­ing over the heart-shaped drug which has left five dead and up to a dozen in hospi­tal.

The killer batch of ec­stasy has been linked to deaths in Liver­pool, Manch­ester and most re­cently North Wales.

Act­ing chief in­spec­tor Simon Bar­ras­ford of North Wales Po­lice said par­ty­go­ers were tak­ing their lives into their hands by tak­ing the pink pills.

He said: “I want to make it very clear that tak­ing th­ese tablets can be fa­tal.”

The drug, also known as Dr Death, is sold to club­bers for as lit­tle as £3 a dose.

Deal­ers sell it as ec­stasy but it is ac­tu­ally PMA – a pow­er­ful stim­u­lant that is around five times as strong.
