Police in Cornwall are warning heroin users of the dangers following two possible drug overdose deaths.
On Wednesday 18th July Police attended a property in Illogan near Redruth following the death of a 47 year old man.
The following day Thursday 19th July Police were called to a property in Truro after a 36 year old man was found deceased.
Although results of a post mortem are awaited police suspect that both deaths may be drug related and possibly linked to a batch of particularly strong and cheap heroin .
They are warning drug users to be particularly careful at present and to seek support for their drug addiction.
Police have also been liaising with key drug support agencies and made them aware of the current strong heroin in circulation.
Police ask that if anyone has any information regarding the supply of heroin that they contact them on 101 quoting police reference AC/12/2854 or alternatively call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555111 or report online at www.Crimestoppers-uk.org
