DANGER: The drug M-Cat has been linked to two deaths.

A mum today told of her terror after her 12-year-old daughter was given deadly Mephedrone, known as M-Cat, by a gang of teenagers.
She told how the youngster had been too shocked to talk about the incident.
The mum warned parents to be on the lookout for M-Cat, a legal drug which police have warned has become rife.
The mum-of-one, who did not want to be named, said: She had been out with some friends and there were some older kids with them.
She had to be home for 9pm and I never thought anything was wrong when she came in the door she seemed fine.
But after about an hour I got a call from my daughters friends mum and she told me they had taken Mephedrone and her daughter wasnt feeling very well.
The mum said she went to check on her daughter, who also said she felt unwell.
She said she later spoke to the other family and police were informed about the drugs incident.
The mum told how her daughter was very lucky and said she hoped other parents were aware of how accessible M-Cat was to youngsters.
She said: I just panicked, I hadnt heard of the drug before.
I didnt know what to do. I couldnt believe she could have got hold of it as she is only 12.
Luckily they were all okay.
I dread to think what could have happened to my daughter.
However, others may not be as lucky.
I only hope more can be done to protect children from the drug.
