Sheffield teenagers ill after taking 'small green pill'

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.

Officers said the two possibly took the pills at an event on Effingham road in the Attercliffe area of the city.

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