Hospital's warning over potentially-fatal heroin batch

One man died and four other people were taken to hospital with suspected heroin overdoses in just 48 hours, a hospital said.

It has prompted a warning from doctors about what they believe is a particularly potent batch of heroin being used in the area.

The medics say it is unusual to have so many separate cases of drugs overdoses in such a short space of time.
