Sinn Féin MLA Jennifer McCann has described the death of a person tonight and the hospitalisation of several others as a tragedy.
Ms McCann said,
"This is a terrible tragedy in which one person has lost their life while celebrating over the Christmas period.
"I would appeal to everyone to be careful while enjoying themselves over the Christmas period and not to take anything that is not trustworthy or deemed safe such as illegal substances or proscribed medication.
"My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of this man and I hope the other people make a full recovery."
