Head teacher Mike Stewart: "We need help"


Head teachers have called for urgent action over the legal drug mephedrone following the death of two teenagers.

The National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) says it has the same dangers as any Class A drug and the government should consider a ban.

Mike Stewart, headteacher of Westlands School in Torbay, has said that teachers need "help" to deal with the problem.
