A police force has warned the public of taking illegal drugs with catchy names after two people were left in hospital after taking “Snapchat pills”.

The warning comes less than two weeks after two people died and more than a dozen were taken to hospital after falling ill at a festival on the south coast.

Police in Manchester are reiterating their warning about taking ecstasy as a 16-year-old boy fights for his life in hospital. Over the past month we have had the death of a 17-year-old girl and the hospitalisation of two young women all after taking a variation of ecstasy.

“We want to remind the public about the dangers of drugs,” West Yorkshire Police said on Twitter. “Drugs are often given catchy names to appeal to young people. We had an incident involving 2 females in hospital after taking ‘Snapchat pills’.

“Any person offered drugs refuse & report via 101 or crime stoppers 0800 555111.”

No images have been released of the Snapchat pills, although there have been cases of illegal drugs being manufactured as small yellow, brick-shaped tablets bearing the mobile app’s logo.
