Police investigating the death of a teenager who died after apparently taking ecstasy have arrested a second man. Sophie Leigh Balmer, 18, from Walton, Liverpool, died at the Royal Liverpool University Hospital on Sunday after becoming unwell.
Police have issued warnings regarding green "Rock Star" pills, which are emblazoned with a star motif after the death of a teenager in Liverpool.
A drug dubbed "Rock Star" sparked a series of police warnings in Lanarkshire, Scotland, in March after seven people were hospitalised and one died after allegedly taking the tablets which were being sold as Ecstasy.
The Scottish pills were described as yellow or red and were also said to have carried a star logo.
Officers from Strathclyde Police said at the time that while the exact contents were unknown, they could contain a cocktail of different substances.
Merseyside Police has issued a warning following the death of an 18-year-old.
The teenager, who is from Walton, was taken to the Royal Liverpool University Hospital at 1.40pm yesterday after becoming unwell.
She died at the hospital a short while later.
A post mortem will be carried out to establish the cause of death.
In the meantime detectives believe that the deceased may have taken a green coloured 'Rock Star' Ecstasy tablet shortly before she died and as a precautionary measure they are warning people not to take this type of tablet.
Inquiries are underway to find out where the tablets were bought and officers are appealing to anyone who may have information to contact St Anne Street Police station on 0151 777 6064, or Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
