A young woman who thought she was overweight died after taking a ‘legal high’ to lose weight.
Loved ones could not convince pretty Sarah Forsyth, 35, she looked fine and urged her to stop taking Ivory Wave, bath salts which have been known to contain a banned drug.
But the Braintree woman, whose weight was affected by taking insulin for Type 1 diabetes, died on Saturday after falling into a coma for 12 days.
Her parents believe Ivory Wave killed their only daughter, and are calling for it to be banned and for websites selling it to be shut down.
Mother Mary Moyle, known as Margaret, said: “I don’t know what’s in this stuff but whoever is selling it they need to find these people and shut them down so they can’t make any other people’s lives a misery.”
