Darwen-born broadcaster Martin Cooper said: "I've spent a lot of time reading about the LGBT community, especially gay and bisexual men, to understand what this drug is.
"It isn't a substitute for other safe sex practices. What it's there for is to help those people who are putting themselves most at risk when it comes to their sexual activities."

"It's not seen as a career of choice, but locally there's a consortium of companies who are trying to get the youngsters into the industry."
