Fake ecstasy pill kills teenager in West Dunbartonshire


A teenager has died after taking fake ecstasy tablets – the seventh reported death linked to the pills.

Police say the tablets circulating in Scotland contain toxic chemicals with potentially fatal effects. The latest case saw an 18-year-old woman die in Alexandria, West Dunbartonshire, on Tuesday morning. Three male friends aged 18, 21 and 25 were admitted to the Royal Alexandra Hospital. Doctors are still treating the 25-year-old.

Police have identified the pills as green in colour and stamped with a crown logo. They are also warning of a white pill with the Mitsubishi logo on it, and a yellow tablet with a star logo.
