Cumbria police issue warning on 'legal highs'

POLICE and health officials are warning about the dangers of so-called "legal highs" after a Cumbria man became seriously ill on the weekend.

The 23-year-old from Whitehaven was admitted to intensive care at West Cumberland Hospital after suffering a severe reaction to some unknown tablets.
The man bought the pills, which are described as dark green and smaller than paracetamol tablets, from another man in Whitehaven on Saturday evening.
Thanks to prompt medical treatment, the man was discharged from hospital on Sunday and is expected to make a full recovery.
For free and confidential advice on drugs, the national Talk to Frank service can be contacted on 0800 77 66 00.
