Police are issuing a warning after four Torpoint teenagers who took so-called legal highs were rushed to hospital.

Paramedics had to be called in on Sunday morning.

Officers think they bought the drugs over the net.

An investigation is underway.

Devon and Cornwall Police have released the following information:

About 0730hours on Sunday 22 June, police were called to an address in Torpoint to assist ambulance crews who were trying to administer emergency medical treatment to four individuals, aged 17-19, who had adversely reacted to consuming a "legal highs."

This dangerous substance appears to have been legitimately purhcased over the internet and consumed, despite warnings and labels to the contrary.

The effects of the substance were initially deemed so serious that the individuals had to be taken to hospital by paramedics under police escort. Thankfully, all involved have since made a full recovery.

Enquiries are ongoing regarding the availability, acquisition and chemical composition of the substance involved on this occasion and a police investigation into associated criminal offences is underway, including assault on a police officer and common assault.

Police are reminding people to be extremely cautious regarding any experimentation with "legal highs" as these substances can be extremely dangerous.
