North Wales Police and Betsi Cadwaladr University Health Board are warning people about the danger of a form of ecstasy called "Green Apples", after the death and serious illness of two local men.
A 19-year-old man from Llangefni died on Saturday after suspected drug use.
Two weeks ago, a 19-year-old man from Bangor was admitted to intensive care after he had taken controlled drugs, but he survived.

From our initial enquiries there appears to be a link in that we understand both young men took the drug ‘Green Apples’ which information suggests is a form of MDMA (Ecstasy), albeit work is ongoing to confirm this.
At this time I would strongly urge those who supply or use ‘Green Apples’ in particular to think hard about what they are doing and to stop immediately.
