River Dart in Totnes searched for 'legal high' teenager

Search teams are continuing to look for a teenager feared to have fallen into a river after taking a so-called "new psychoactive substance" (NPS).

Divers, the Dartmoor Rescue Group and a helicopter were drafted in on Saturday to help find Nathan Wood.

The 16 year-old was reportedly seen running naked near the River Dart in Totnes in a "distressed state" after he is believed to have taken a former "legal high", police said.

Emergency services said they are confident of a "positive outcome".
