Missing Methadone

Staying with Broadstairs, six bottles of Methadone, a potentially fatal drug used as a heroin substitute by recovering addicts have been stolen from a tent on a temporary campsite in the county.

Three 50ml bottles and three 30ml bottles of methadone were taken by an unknown person or persons from the Broadstairs Folk Week site at Upton School, Broadstairs, sometime overnight.

A police spokesman said: "We have consulted with a local pharmacist who stated that this is a very dangerous drug and unsupervised use could prove fatal."

Anyone with information is asked to contact Margate police station urgently on 01843 231055.

Is almost a quarter of a litre of methadone a lot of substitute heroin to have?
I will not be able to look again at those fine groups of Morrismen, hopping and skipping and waving handkerchiefs or knocking sticks on the Broadstairs promenade without wondering if they get a kick from more than Real Ale.
