Ecstasy pill alert after woman dies in London

By Rachael Burnett

Police issued a warning about ecstasy pills after a woman died and two men were brought to hospital after taking the drugs.

All three were Vietnamese nationals in south London, leading Scotland Yard to direct the advice towards the south-east Asian community.

The pills are orange and rectangular, with no distinctive markings on them.

The 22-year-old woman died in King's College Hospital on August 28 after being taken ill at a house in Knight's Hill, Lambeth.

Her family has been informed and a post mortem examination will be carried out today.

One of her friends, a man in his 20s, was also taken to hospital in a critical condition and has since been discharged.

A 17-year-old boy was taken ill at the Electric nightclub in Brixton yesterday. He is in a critical condition in hospital.
