Police warn that drinks are being spiked in Lincoln City Centre
Lincolnshire Police have issued a warning after three women had their drinks spiked in Lincoln City Centre.
The three women who were out in the City Centre became ill with two of them having to go to A&E.
The two women had no lasting effects, but Lincolnshire Police are warning people to be very careful and to keep an eye on their drinks at all times.
Lincolnshire Police said the women – aged 18 and 19 – became “unwell and disoriented after drinking a beverage in a bar” last night (Friday, October 8).
Detective Sergeant George Wynn, of Lincoln CID, said: “Drink spiking is a serious crime and one that we won’t tolerate here in Lincolnshire.
“We want people to have fun and enjoy themselves during a night out and whilst we will do all that we can to tackle this, we recommend taking preventative measures too such as, never leaving your drink unattended and never accepting a drink when you haven’t seen it being prepared in front of you.”
Police are still investigating the incident and are asking for anyone with any knowledge of the incident to come forward.
