Hawick youngsters in mystery pills scare

A teenager is expected to appear in court today after ten youngsters were treated in hospital after taking mystery pink pills.

The ten, all aged 16 or under, were from Hawick and were treated at the Borders General Hospital. They have all now been allowed home.

Police confirmed that 19-year-old man from Hawick has been arrested and is expected to appear at Jedburgh Sheriff Court.

Inspector John Reid of Police Scotland said the public should remain vigilant in case any of the unidentified tablets were still in circulation.
