Warning over potentially deadly batch of drugs in circulation in Leeds

Drug users in Leeds are being warned about a potentially deadly batch of heroin in circulation in Leeds.

West Yorkshire Police have received reports of a potentially strong strain of the drug in circulation over the past couple of weeks.

We would urge anyone who has recently purchased this substance in the Leeds area to dispose of it, as it is possible it is a potentially fatal strain of the drug.

Although drug users think they know what they are taking - this isn't always the case.

We work closely with our partners to make communities of West Yorkshire safer places to live and work.

The police will always encourage drug users to seek help from the number of drug treatment agencies that operate throughout West Yorkshire.

– Detective Inspector Paul Hobson, West Yorkshire Police

Mixed night at Brit Awards 2017 for Yorkshire exports Calum Scott, Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson

One Direction star Louis Tomlinson added yet another award to his trophy cabinet as his band picked up the Best British Video of the Year.

The band overcame competition from none other than ex-member Zayn Malik, who is from Bradford, in the category.

The 25-year-old from Doncaster wasn't there to pick up the gong - the duties left to bandmate Liam Payne.

Meanwhile Hull's Calum Scott missed out on the award for Best British Single with his hit 'Dancing on My Own'. Malik also missed out in the category, with Little Mix taking the prize for their song 'Shout Out to My Ex'.
