Six people have been taken to hospital after taking a high strength form of ecstasy in Middlesbrough.
The young people had been attending a 'RIFF RAFF' function at the Medicine Bar in Middlesbrough on Saturday night.
All six were later hospitalised after suffering from the effects of taking MDMA tablets marked with a 'UPS' logo.
A spokesperson for Cleveland Police said:
"Taking this type of tablet can prove dangerous and is potentially life-threatening.
Young people and parents should be aware of the harm these tablets pose."
