The PSNI has issued a warning on the potential increased risk due to a contaminated supply of cocaine in Derry.

Detective Superintendent Bobby Singleton, from PSNI’s Organised Crime Unit, said police had received information that there may be a contaminated supply of cocaine in the Co Derry and Co Antrim areas.

He added: "The information suggests that anybody consuming these drugs could experience serious adverse effects."

“All drugs carry risks and have the potential to be a poison.

"I’d appeal to anyone with any information on these or other suspected drugs in their community to contact police on the non-emergency number 101.
"Alternatively, people can provide information through the independent charity Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111, which is 100% anonymous and gives people the power to speak up and stop crime.”
