Police investigating the death of a teenage girl, who died after taking an ecstasy pill, have confirmed that they have made two arrests.
Shortly after 5am on Monday 2 May 2016 police were called to the Victoria Warehouse, On Trafford Wharf Road, to reports that a 17-year-old girl had suffered an adverse reaction after allegedly taking one ‘MasterCard’ ecstasy pill whilst on a night out. She sadly died in hospital a short time later.
In the early hours of the morning on Tuesday 3 May police arrested a 19-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman in the St Helens area on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug. Both of them remain in custody for questioning.
Detective Chief Inspector Ben Ewart of GMP’s Trafford division has remarked, “Our thoughts and condolences remain with the family of this girl at this heart breaking time. We have made two arrests in connection with this investigation and currently have a man and a woman in custody who will be questioned later today”.
Mr. Ewart added, “Sadly, we know that other people will have taken this form of ecstasy, known as ‘MasterCard’, and we are continuing to urge anybody who may have taken it to please get themselves checked out”.
