Sinn Féin MLA Catherine Seeley has warned of the dangers of illegal drugs after several deaths over the Christmas period.

The Sinn Féin health spokesperson said; 

"New of three drug-related deaths over the Christmas period is deeply worrying. 

"The fact that these deaths occurred at this time of year, and involved teenagers, makes it all the more tragic. 

"I would appeal to anyone not to take illegal drugs or anything they are unsure about. And if anyone has taken anything, or becomes concerned about a friend who has taken something, they should seek medical help immediately. 

"Anyone with any information on the sale or supply of illegal drugs in our communities should contact the PSNI."
