COPS yesterday alerted pub and clubgoers to a batch of pink ‘kangaroo’ ecstasy tablets after a man collapsed and died.
Darren Baker, 22, was found lying in an alley in Newmarket, Suffolk, at 2am on Sunday after visiting nightspots. He was dead 12 hours later.
He is thought to have taken one or more of the speckled two-tone pink pills, which have a kangaroo shape cut in them.
Detective Inspector Martin Wright said Darren, of Burwell, Cambs, may have “taken a quantity” of ecstasy pills. A post mortem was held last night to try to determine what killed him.
Newmarket mayor Warwick Hirst said: “He was only 22. It’s very sad.”
A man, 27, is on police bail after being quizzed over supplying ecstasy.
