A number of live events have issued fresh drug advice following the death of two fans at Portmouth's Mutiny Festival.
A number of people were taken ill at the weekend, while two attendees - aged just 18 and 20 respectively - passed away after taking illegal substances.
Super-strength 'Punisher' pills have been linked to these incidents, with a number of festivals issuing fresh advice to attendees.
ALERT: Silver Bar and Silver Audi tablets in circulation with many different batches, some 4x more MDMA inside than others. Name, reputation and appearance of a tablet can't be trusted - always test. #TimeToTest #lovesavestheday pic.twitter.com/5xXWJAFQUY— Love Saves The Day (@LSTDBristol) May 27, 2018
ALERT: Pink heart pill tested yesterday in Bristol city centre. Sold as ecstasy but found to contain n-methyl pentylone, 100mg. This is a v high dose of this unpleasant, long-lasting stimulant. If you are at @LSTDbristol & are feeling unwell, please seek welfare or medical staff. pic.twitter.com/okCETdTdkk— The Loop (@WeAreTheLoopUK) May 26, 2018
No doubt you have seen in the press about two very sad tragedies at a festival over the weekend.— Parklife (@Parklifefest) May 29, 2018
There is a VERY strong batch of pills in circulation, with strength over 330mg. These tablets, along with others, can result in death. Please act responsibly & look after each other. pic.twitter.com/rfY1XixtCF
