Young people in Welshpool are being urged to think twice before taking MDMA (ecstasy) tablets this festive season.

It follows several hospitalisations in the reign this week, according to Dyfed Powys Police.

The tablets could be circulating in the area.

Police are urging anyone considering taking ecstasy to firstly, not put their health and lives at risk, but secondly, be particularly careful if offered MDMA (ecstasy) named Ikea, blue and yellow tablets branded with the Ikea logo, or Rolls Royce, which are pink tablets embossed with the Rolls Royce logo.
