Drug warning after clubbers at Beckton party fall ill

People who attended a warehouse party in London have been warned by police not to take drugs bought at the venue.

A number of people who went to the party at Hillcroft Road, in Beckton on Friday suffered extreme reactions after taking a substance believed to be MDMA.

At least three clubbers went to an east London hospital for treatment, with one person suffering potentially life-threatening injuries, police said.

Officers are investigating who supplied the drugs.

A Met Police spokesman said: "We strongly advise anyone who bought drugs at the party last night not to take these as the consequences could be potentially life-threatening."
