A staggering one in 20 15-year-olds have tried cocaine, according to a new report.
The figure means Britain is at the top of the European league when it comes to illegal drug use amongst teenagers, says the study.
Five per cent of 15 and 16-year-olds in Britain have dabbled in cocaine - that's around 75,000 teenagers.
The only other European country to have such a huge cocaine problem is Spain, where more young people and adults were found to have taken the drug than anywhere else in the world, including America.
The report was published by the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction.
