A 16-year-old girl is fighting for her life in Guernsey after taking drugs at a party. 

It happened on Thursday night though details only emerged on Friday evening. Seven people have been arrested by police in connection with the incident. 

The teenager, who was taken to the Princess Elizabeth Hospital, is described as being in a critical condition. 

The police say they’re ‘imploring’ islanders not to take drugs, describing the consequences of doing so as ‘beyond anything you can imagine’.

Anybody with information about what happened at the party is asked to call Crimestoppers on 0800 555111 or Guernsey Police on 01481 725111.
