A 17-year-old boy has died after taking drugs.

Police are warning teenagers about drugs after a 17-year-old boy has died in Preston.

An evening with friends ended tragically for the teen, who’s thought to have taken MDMA and cannabis.

He was at a friend’s house when he started to feel unwell. An ambulance was called and sadly he was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the Royal Preston Hospital.

Drugs affect how your body works and taking them can harm you or even lead to death. Dealers mix drugs with other stuff so you don’t know exactly what you’re taking or what effect it will have on you. Taking drugs can even make you very vulnerable to being taken advantage of or having an accident.

Don’t take what your friends say about drugs as being the truth. Get the facts here.
