Police believe illegal drugs may have caused the death of one man and left a second man seriously ill in hospital.

Emergency services were called to a house in the Raigmore area of Inverness at about 18:25 on Thursday.

Northern Constabulary said an investigation was continuing and a possible line of inquiry was that Scott McIntosh's death was drugs-related.

Police warned the drug potentially involved may have been a type of ecstasy tablet known as Einsteins.

The blue-green tablets have the letters E=mc2 inscribed on them.

Mr McIntosh died in hospital while the second man remains in a serious condition, officers said.
