Warning over missing methodone

Northumbria Police have issued a warning about a batch of strong prescription drugs which were lost on a bus in the Gateshead area. The two bottles of methadone were reported missing earlier today (Friday).

They had been left on the Go Gateshead number 54 bus travelling from Saltwell Road to Coatsworth Road at about 9 am this morning. Known as 'blue methodone', it is ten times the normal strength of normal methodone and could cause serious harm if taken unprescribed.
