Police investigating the supply of ecstasy to Leah Betts, who collapsed after taking the drug at her 18th birthday party, yesterday arrested four men and a woman following raids on homes in Basildon, Essex.

Detectives also issued an urgent appeal to trace an anonymous woman telephone caller who gave information which they say could provide a key lead in the hunt for the drug pusher who supplied Leah. Meanwhile, yesterday she remained in a coma on a ventilator at Broomfield hospital in Chelmsford, Essex.
