RED DRUG ALERT! Urgent action required

Cambridgeshire Constabulary have received credible information that Ecstasy tablets, similar to those that have been connected to the deaths of four individuals over the Christmas period in Suffolk and Shropshire, may now be available in central Cambridgeshire.
The Ecstacy tablets are red, triangular in shape and embossed with a ‘S’ Superman logo. These tablets are thought to have a large concentration of PMMA, which acts more slowly than MDMA. If you have taken drugs and start to feel unwell call 999 immediately
There is no way of knowing what is in any pills. Clearly it is safest to steer clear altogether. For safety advice around drugs please visit the following website:

Please can you disseminate this alert to your peers as soon as possible. Please also urge your service users to share information with services and their peers, and report any concerns to the Police on 101
If you have any further queries, please contact the DAAT team on 01223 699 680.
Thank you for your assistance in preventing further fatalities or harm.
