Inquiry to identify 'substance' after Hull teenager dies

Louise Wheeler

BBC Local Live

A 19-year-old man has died and a teenager, also 19, is in hospital in Hull after taking suspected drugs.

Experts are still working to identify the substance the two may have taken. 

The men were at a house in Park Grove off Princes Avenue (seen below) when the emergency services were called. 

I think it is tragic and unfortunate. There is an attitude on the part of some that these things are there so we have to accept it. It will get worse not better.
