Two teenagers are seriously ill in hospital after taking a drug described by police, as "a small green pill".

The two boys, aged 16 and 17, were taken to the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield after displaying aggressive behaviour.

A 17-year-old youth has been arrested on suspicion of supplying the drugs which are paracetamol-sized.
