Drugs warning from festival coma victim

jordan-blackburn-comaCumbrian teenager Jordan Blackburn has posted a photo and brave message on Facebook after he was left in a coma and he has admitted that the cause was  taking drugs at Kendal Calling 2015. The drugs tragically left his 18 year old friend Christian Pay from Millom in Cumbria dead. In all nine people were taken seriously ill after taking the drugs. Organisers of the 20,000 capacity Kendal Calling  used the screens on the main stage to warn festival goers of the dangers the drugs posed. Jordan’s message reads:




Drugs seized that may be linked to the illnesses include a blue tablet with an Adidas logo, yellow powder believed to be MDMA, and an orange oval tablet with a Rolls-Royce logo. Other seized drugs have been described as green tablets with a white fleck and plain grey tablets with a white fleck. Four people were arrested on suspicion of intent to supply drugs. All were released on bail.
