School Fights Mephedrone

The head teacher at a Bournemouth girls school has vowed to crack down on the drug mephedrone.

It's after half a dozen pupils at Glenmoor admitted they've started using the 'legal high' - which has been linked to the deaths of 5 young people across the UK.

They're now holding special drug classes for pupils at the school and the girls involved have all been referred to get help.

Headteacher Roger Allen says they're working with the police to educate children:

"We're making it absolutely clear to children that there are risks involved with these substances. They need to be careful and be absolutely sure that they don't bring any substances to school".
