Letter: 'Ecstasy' and agony of acid house party

Sir: I was outraged by Marianne Macdonald's description (8 February) of the dubious delights of an acid house party in Dalston. Maybe I am more than usually concerned, as a 15-year-old pupil of mine has been on a life support machine for the past six weeks because she went to such a party - and in Dalston. There is no hope for the child. There may be no hope for others if they believe these parties are as 'harmless' as Marianne Macdonald makes them out to be.

Yours sincerely,
