Five people have been treated in hospital in Stockton after taking what police believed to be contaminated drugs.

Doctors at the North Tees General Hospital admitted four men and a woman from the Hardwick area of Stockton, who had become unwell on Sunday.

Three of them have since been discharged and the two remaining in hospital were not thought to be in danger.

Police said three people have been arrested and were awaiting questioning.

Officers have urged anyone who felt unwell after taking drugs to go to hospital.
