Schoolboy, 14, fighting for life after taking drugs
The teenager is in a critical condition at Ninewells Hospital in Dundee.
A 14-year-old boy is fighting for his life after taking drugs.
The schoolboy was taken to Ninewells Hospital, Dundee, in a critical condition.
A 13-year-old boy also received medical treatment by his doctor in the city earlier this week.
It is understood both boys consumed a substance in a red and white capsule.
Detective inspector Tom Leonard said: "Our thoughts are very much with this young boy's family and friends.
"He is currently in hospital where he is gravely ill and in a critical condition.
"It might be that others may have taken the substance and I am urging members of the public, especially parents and guardians to be vigilant as drugs have devastating impact."
He added: "The message is clear, there is no safe way to take drugs - there is always a risk. The effects can be unpredictable and can cause serious harm.
"We are committed to tackling the issues of drugs in our community and we continue to work with partner agencies including local authorities, health officials and medical staff."
