Ecstasy 'could have contributed' to teenager's death

A 19-year-old from Salford died on Sunday and police are raising the possibility that ecstasy was a contributing factor.

Our enquiries have revealed that Travis was last seen alive on Friday 15th February 2013, when he took an ecstasy tablet in the shape of a pink heart.

At this stage we believe there is a possibility this could have been a factor leading to his death.

Further toxicology tests will be carried out to establish the exact cause of death.
