Teenagers in hospital after taking 'legal high' Clockwork Orange Herbal Incense


Police have issued fresh warnings to teenagers about the dangers of “legal high” drugs after three 15-year-olds were rushed to hospital vomiting blood yesterday.

The two girls and a boy were thought to have taken a synthetic called Clockwork Orange Herbal Incense earlier at a house in Blyth, Northumberland.

They were taken to hospital where they remained under observation today. They were in a stable condition.

Northumbria Police warned that “legal high” drugs often contained “potentially dangerous chemicals”.

Superintendent Alan Veitch said: “The use of ‘legal high’ drugs is not safe and can kill or have a devastating impact on people’s health.

“Anyone who misuses drugs, prescribed or non-prescribed, is putting their life at risk and people should be aware this risk is significantly increased if they are mixed with alcohol.”
