Drugs arrest in Stafford after three taken to hospital

A man was arrested in Stafford Town Centre this afternoon after police responded to three people apparently taken ill after taking what the officer suspect were so-called legal highs.

A local PCSO saw the men being taken ill near Shire Hall at around 4:40pm today (Thursday 15 October) and promptly called for help from West Midlands Ambulance Service who provided emergency treatment. The man was arrested on suspicion of committing drug offences and police are reminding people of the dangers of taking any drugs or so called legal highs.

Further examination of items seized will now take place whilst police investigate the incident.
