Police have issued a warning following the death of a teenager in a suspected drug related incident.
A 15-year-old boy was admitted to North Devon District Hospital after taking a recreational drug at a youth disco in Ilfracombe on Friday. He died in the early hours of this morning. His next of kin have been informed.
Enquires are currently underway into this death.
We have also been informed of two young adults being admitted to Derriford Hospital in Plymouth after also taking a recreational drug last night at a house party; both remain in hospital and one in a serious condition.
It is currently believed that all three had taken what they thought to have been MDMA tablets.
