Three 12-year-old girls who took ecstasy pills described as ‘Teddy Tablets’ are now in a stable condition, with one girl expected to be discharged on Monday.
The girls, from Salford, were taken to hospital after police were called to Salford Precinct at around 9:50pm on Saturday 18 June.
A man aged 22 and a woman aged 21 were arrested on suspicion of being in possession of a controlled substance and have been bailed until 15 July.
Detective Chief Inspector Chris Walker, of GMP’s Salford Borough, warned of the dangers of drugs.
“People taking these drugs don’t know what they contain or what effect they will have,” he said.
“It’s not worth the risk of ending up in hospital or even suffering fatal consequences”.
The news comes just months after a 17-year-old girl died after taking the ecstasy strain ‘Mastercard’ at Victoria Warehouse in Trafford.
It has since come to light that the ‘Mastercard’ pills may have contained an above average dosage, and DCI Walker was keen to warn young people off trying the drug.
He said that: “It is imperative young people understand the implications and avoid taking drugs, to stop any more young people ending up in hospital”.
