Three men were rushed to hospital following a drugs related incident at a gay sauna in London.

Chariots Health Club in Vauxhall was temporarily closed after the incident which occurred in the morning on Sunday 1 February. Several police cars and ambulances were called to the scene. 

A statement from the Metropolitan Police said: "Officers attended and spoke to a man in his thirties who admitted consuming class A drugs. He was taken to a north London hospital where he remains in a stable condition.

"Two other men were subsequently found collapsed inside the club. Both men were conveyed by London Ambulance Service to a central London hospital where they remain in a stable condition."

Pink News reported that in 2011, a separate branch of Chariots in Shoreditch was severly damaged in a fire. In 2012, a 46-year-old man was found dead in the Shoreditch Chariots.

The Vauxhall sauna has since reopened. The Independent has reached out to Chariots Health Club for comment.
