Drugs warning after men found dead
Police were today warning of the dangers of taking illegal drugs after the bodies of two men were found at a flat in a seaside town.
The bodies of the two men, aged in their early 30s and late 20s, were discovered in Babbacombe Road, Torquay, Devon, last night.
The deaths are thought to be drugs-related with a quantity of blue tablets recovered from the address.
A police spokesman said the drugs had been sent away for toxic analysis.
"We want people to be especially careful over the Christmas period, especially in the light of these deaths," he said.
"We know that illegal drugs are taken, perhaps more so at this time of the year, but need to stress that people simply do not know what they are taking.
"People that produce these drugs make mistakes with their strength. There is no way to guarantee that the potency of these drugs will not be excessively high - and this can lead to tragic consequences."
The grim discovery was made at around 10.30pm and paramedics and police attempted resuscitation but both men were pronounced dead at the scene.
The deaths are currently being treated as unexplained, however they are not believed to be suspicious, police said.
Their families and the Cornwall Coroner have been informed.
