POLICE today vowed to track down the drug dealers targeting teenagers with killer drug ecstasy. Education bosses have pledged to work with the teachers and police officers after six pupils at Witton Park High School business and enterprise college ... were taken to hospital after taking ecstasy.

Ambulance crews called to deal with the six -- who spent a night in hospital before being released on Wednesday -- informed police whose investigation led to two 14-year-old girls being arrested on suspicion of supplying drugs. A quantity of tablets were seized at the school.
