POLICE LEGAL HIGH CRACKDOWN AT GLOBAL

Police have promised to crack down on legal highs at this weekend's Global Gathering.

40,000 people are expected at the festival this weekend (July 27-28) which will see sets from Chase & Status, Skrillex, Visionquest and Tinie Tempah.

The annual event will see a team of 50 officers, complete with sniffer dogs, searching people for legal and illegal drugs on entrance promising to arrest anyone with illegal substances and make the stewards aware of anyone found to be in possession of legal highs.

The police officer in charge of the operation, Supt Martin Samuel said "The organisers have told us they don’t want drugs on the festival site and anyone found with legal highs faces being turned away."

"People may think legal highs are all right to take, but just because they have a label saying “Legal in Britain” or something similar, doesn’t mean they are safe for human consumption. They can make you very ill."

The festivals tough stance on legal highs mirrors that of T in the Park which banned legal highs earlier in the season.
