Teen in hospital after apparently taking drug called 'Magic'

Police are investigating after a teenager from Dukinfield was taken to hospital last night suffering from the effects of taking drugs.

Initial inquiries have established that the girl may have taken a drug known as ‘Magic’ and, as a result, suffered a bad reaction.

She is being treated in hospital and is in a stable condition.

Detective Inspector Andy Sandiford said:

"We are still investigating the circumstances surrounding this incident and exactly what the girl has ingested that caused her to fall ill and require hospital treatment.

“Fortunately, her condition is not life-threatening, but this could have been much worse.

"I want to ensure there aren't any other people who have ingested whatever this girl has taken and have not yet sought medical attention as they could be at risk."
