Five people left “critically ill” after Parklife due to high-strength ecstasy, police issue warning

Five people have been left “critically ill” after Parklife festival due to high-strength ecstasy, leading police to issue a warning. 

The 'Skype' tablets are said to have around three times the dose of MDMA normally found in pills of this type. 

During the event, which took place in Manchester's Heaton Park last weekend with around 80,000 people in attendance, drug awareness and testing charity The Loop posted a photo of the tablets to Twitter with a note to revellers after they had been linked to a series of welfare cases.
