A 15-year-old girl has died after suffering an adverse reaction from a suspected “legal high,” police said.
She was found unconscious at about 04:50 BST at Bakers Park in Newton Abbot, Devon, and died later at Torbay Hospital.
Two other girls were also taken to hospital as a precaution.
The substance has not yet been identified, said Devon and Cornwall Police. Anyone with information is asked to contact the force.
A spokesman said: “Police currently believe that both girls had taken a new psychoactive substance, more commonly referred to as ‘legal highs’, and had suffered adverse reaction.”
Investigations are continuing and a cordon is in place at the scene.
Last year Totnes teenager Nathan Wood died after after taking the psychoactive drug N-Bomb.
Police called on parents to “speak to your children about the dangers of drugs and (formerly known as) legal highs”.
“They can cause death even if taken just once.”
