Police attended a school on Stainton Way, Middlesbrough, after a report that a pupil had fallen ill on Thursday 18th January around 2:10pm. Officers are investigating the possible cause of this, which could be related to the use of a vape.
A 15-year-old girl was taken to James Cook University Hospital, where she received treatment and was later released.
As a result of police enquiries, today a 15-year-old male has been arrested on suspicion of being concerned in the supply of drugs.
Officers have been working closely with local schools over recent months to share information and intelligence around the supply of vapes containing illegal substances and would again urge parents, guardians and anyone with information they may have about those supplying these vapes to call Cleveland Police on 101.
