Cara Teven is a young woman on a mis­sion that could make a night on the tiles a lit­tle safer for ev­ery­one – but par­tic­u­larly for other young women.

The 21-year-old law stu­dent, from Ayr, launched the Girls Against Spik­ing cam­paign, which has the back­ing of Po­lice Scot­land. And she’s mak­ing progress.

The Univer­sity of Strath­clyde have be­gun to of­fer drinks with lids in a bid to de­ter those scum­bags who might try to spike booze with date-rape drugs. ( Top blokes, eh?) It’s a crime be­lieved to be mas­sively un­der-re­ported, with vic­tims too of­ten blamed and shamed.

So Cara is tak­ing a stand, lob­by­ing pubs and clubs to adopt the “lids” idea. Good on her. Time to fight back and time those busy night­clubs did more to pro­tect their young cus­tomers, whose money they’re quick enough to take.
