PSNI drugs warning after death of 34-year-old
The Police Service of Northern Ireland (PSNI) has issued a warning about drugs after the death of a 34-year-old man in County Londonderry.
Another man, aged 26, is in a serious condition in hospital and police said a number of other people may have become unwell after taking drugs.
The man died in the Moneymore area on Sunday night.
Police said that a "possible link to drug or substance abuse is a strong line of enquiry".
They have appealed for information from anyone who was at a house in Northland Road, Moneymore, on Sunday night.
Detective Chief Inspector Brian Foster said a post-mortem examination had yet to take place.
"Our investigation is at an early stage but we believe that drugs may be a factor in both incidents," he said.
"We also believe that a number of other people may have sought medical attention last night after becoming unwell following the consumption of drugs."
He added: "If you have taken drugs or other substances and are feeling unwell please seek medical attention immediately."
