    Two young people thought to have died after taking drugs in the run-up to Christmas have been named. Charlotte Woodiwiss, 20, from Chapel-en-le-Frith in Derbyshire, was found dead at a flat in her home village on 22 December.

    Dale Yates, 18, from Buxton in Derbyshire, was found dead at a flat on Eagle Parade in the town on 23 December.

    Eleven people have been arrested on suspicion of drugs offences and bailed.
    Four of those, three men and a woman from the Chapel-en-le-Frith area, were arrested on suspicion of supplying class A drugs.

    Police said the deaths were not thought to be linked to each other and the two young people were not thought to have known each other.

    In a blog post on 20 December Ms Woodiwiss said she was studying art and in the last year of her degree course.

    'Drugs and alcohol'

    Steve Holme, from Derbyshire Constabulary's drugs unit, said the young people had both been at locations where drugs were used.

    "We know that both had probably used a combination of drugs as well as alcohol and we're awaiting toxicology tests to be sure," he said.

    Officers warned people about the dangers of mis-using drugs.

    Insp Martin Coey said: "We don't yet know the cause of these young people's deaths but we don't want anyone else to die if we can prevent it.

    "Anyone who takes drugs needs to be aware that there is no guarantee that the drug is what they think it is. "Illegal drugs and so-called legal highs can have different strengths and have different components. All drugs can be dangerous and people who use them should not mix them with alcohol."

    Arrests follow suspected drugs deaths in Derbyshire

    Seven people have been arrested on suspicion of drug offences following the deaths of two young people in Derbyshire in the run-up to Christmas.

    A 20-year-old woman was found at a flat in Chapel-en-le-Frith on Saturday and an 18-year-old man was found in a flat in Eagle Parade, Buxton, on Sunday.

    Police said the deaths were not suspicious but both were believed to have taken a combination of drugs.
    The two incidents are not currently being linked.

    Two people were arrested after the death in Chapel-en-le-Frith while five were detained after the death in Buxton.

    All have now been released on bail pending further inquiries.

    Steve Holme, from Derbyshire Constabulary's drugs unit, said: "We know both people had been at locations where drugs were used.

    "We know that both had probably used a combination of drugs as well as alcohol and we're awaiting toxicology tests to be sure.

    "There's nothing to link the supply of the drugs in each case at the moment, although we're testing items we've recovered and seeing if there are similarities."
