Drugs alert after clubbers collapse
The pair collapsed at the Emporium nightclub in Cardiff
Detectives have issued a drugs alert to revellers and party-goers after two people collapsed at a nightclub.
Officers are concerned that an unidentified batch of harmful drugs may be circulating in Cardiff.
A man aged 42 and a 29-year-old woman were taken unconscious to Cardiff's University Hospital after collapsing at the Emporium nightclub in High Street.
They were later transferred to a special poisons unit at Llandough Hospital where they were described as being in a "stable" condition.
The pair, who have not been named, are believed to have taken an unknown substance at the club.
Other people attending a function there gave first aid and called an ambulance.
Detective Inspector Jim Middleton, leading inquiries, said: "Tests are being carried out to try to identify exactly what was involved.
"We are concerned that more of this noxious substance may turn up."
Police have set up an incident room at Cardiff Central police station.
