At a time when there has been a widespread public debate regarding how to keep women safe when out at night, it is distressing to learn that at least one woman allegedly had her drinks spiked in a Londonderry bar. Social media carried claims that other women were also targeted.

With bars recently fully reopened and nightclubs due to open around Halloween it is imperative that anyone with information on who was responsible for tampering with women’s drinks should give it to the PSNI. It is a crime to administer a noxious substance to anyone and there is no doubt that spiking drinks is done with sinister intent.
