Two men from Woking suspected of taking drugs from a 'dangerous batch' have ended up in hospital.

Police say a 50 year old man was taken to hospital after falling ill in the Guildford Road area just after 4pm yesterday.

Paramedics resuscitated him at the scene. 

The road was closed while emergency services attended.

Afterwards, a 42 year old man was also taken to hospital suffering similar symptoms in the early hours of this morning (August 16).

Officers investigating suspect both incidents may be linked to the supply of heroin or a similar type of drug.

Ongoing support is being provided to the two men and their families.  

Police are working with drugs charities and health agencies in the area to identify and update anyone who could be vulnerable or at risk. 

Borough Commander, Detective Inspector Andy Greaves said: 

"We do not condone the use of illegal substances, however we are urging drug users to take the utmost care and to seek medical advice from their local hospital immediately if they have any concerns. 

"We also need the co-operation of drug users, and their friends and family, to get this potentially dangerous batch off the street. 

"If you believe you have bought this drug, or know someone who has, make sure no-one takes it and bring it to your local police station or contact Crimestoppers if you would rather remain anonymous.

"One of the risks of taking drugs is that you don’t always know what they contain. We are treating this extremely seriously and would urge drug users to do the same.

"Illegal drugs are dangerous and we advise the public not to take them at any time, but now more than ever".

Police urge anyone with any information on the source of supply of the heroin to contact them as soon as possible on 101 quoting 45190086228.

Alternatively you can call Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111 in confidence free of charge.
