Police are warning anyone who took recreational drugs in Doncaster last night of their danger after they left a man in critical condition in hospital and another suffering chest pains.

A 29-year-old man is said to be in a life-threatening condition in hospital after having a heart attack inside the Warehouse nightclub, in North Bridge Road, Doncaster, in the early hours of this morning.

Police said his condition was critical, but stable.

The multi-coloured pills pictured were found on him.

At 5.40am this morning officers on patrol were flagged down to help a second man aged 32, who was having chest pains. He’d also been at the Warehouse and said he’d taken pills similar to those pictured.

He was taken to hospital for treatment and has since been discharged.

Detective Sergeant Andy Knowles said: “We believe these tablets may be some form of ecstasy, but this has not yet been confirmed. They may well be home made and could be extremely harmful.

“I want to warn anyone who bought pills similar to these not to take them and also advise anyone who has taken them to seek medical assistance.

“I’d like to hear from anyone who was at the Warehouse nightclub last night who may have information about where the tablets came from. We need to make sure that other pills like this are taken out of circulation as soon as possible to ensure no one else is hurt.”
