Police in South Yorkshire have issued a warning about legal highs.

The force said it is a ‘common misconception’ that because substances are not classed as illegal they are safe.

Detective Inspector Sean Bird said: “I have serious concerns that people who take these drugs do not realise that they are not safe.

“Legal highs can carry the same health risks as taking illegal highs and the effects can be unpredictable and dangerous.”
