Police are warning people to show caution after five teenage boys were taken to hospital after it was suspected they had taken MDMA (also known as ecstasy).

Detective Inspector Lisa Sears said: "We believe they have taken a type of MDMA known as 'Mandy'. At this time we are keeping an open mind as to whether this is a bad batch of drugs or an overdose.
"We are contacting Public Health for further advice. In the meantime we would urge drug users to be cautious and if you have taken this drug in the last few days consider seeking medical advice."
