AN 18-YEAR-OLD has been banned from more than 20 clubs in Aberdeen city centre after being found with legal highs.

The man was carrying mephedrone, known as M-Cat, which has similar effects to cocaine.

The 22 clubs in Aberdeens Unight group have decided to ban anyone found with M-Cat for at least six months.

Grampian Police Sergeant David Bremner said the man was caught as part of Operation Oak on Friday and Saturday nights in Aberdeen, where 560 people were tested.

He said: One 18-year-old youth who was celebrating his birthday was found in possession of mephedron in Aberdeen.

The message is simple, you cannot use M-Cat if you want to go out in Aberdeen.
