Two women's drinks spiked with drug at Plymouth club
POLICE have issued a warning to revellers to keep their drinks close in the run up to Christmas after a suspected spiking incident involving two young women at a city nightclub.
Detectives have revealed they are investigating an incident at an un-named club in the city where two women, both aged 23, are believed to have had their drinks spiked with a drug.
Samples have been taken from both of the women, understood to be local to Plymouth, in an effort to confirm what kind of substance was put in their drinks sometime of the night of November 28.
A police spokesman said both women contacted police on Thursday complaining of similar experiences which led detectives to suspect they had fallen prey to a drug.

The spokesman said: "We understand the women had not drunk before going out and had only gone to the one nightclub.
"From the information they have given us and from the descriptions of their experiences and the effects they felt that night, we do believe the women have had a substance added to their drinks.
"Clearly this is of great concern and we would like to reiterate our message to revellers, particularly women, to keep an eye on their drinks.
"In the run up to Christmas there will be a lot partying in the city's pubs and clubs and while this is a rare and isolated incident, we urge people to be aware of their surroundings and be responsible with their drinks.
"We are working with pubs, clubs and Best Bar None organisation to reduce the risk of such incidents."
