Father calls for 'legal high' ban after son's death in Newtownards

The parents of a teenager from County Down who was found dead have called for a ban on "legal high" drugs.

Adam Owens, 17, was discovered on Monday, lying on grass outside a house in Bristol Park in the Westwinds estate, Newtownards.

His parents said the drugs transformed him "from a happy intelligent young man into a suicidal teenager".

BBC News NI's Will Leitch reports.
