Warning to parents

Alert message sent 02/09/2021 15:51:00

Information sent on behalf of Durham Constabulary

Officers are warning young people and their parents of a dangerous new trend involving vaping after one boy was left debilitated.

It is believed the teenager vaped a mixture of CBD and THC oil – a harmful concoction which can cause a range of nasty side effects.

Thankfully the teenager was at home at the time and was able to get help when he became unwell, but officers particularly want to warn any young people who may be offered or use the liquid, especially in remote areas around Barnard Castle and Teesdale.

A large quantity of the dull yellow liquid - is being sold in sport bottles and distributed in small, unlabelled bottles – has already been seized by police.

Remember, it is illegal to vape if you are under 18.

If you see or are offered anything that matches the liquid’s description, call 101 or 999 in an emergency.
