Dame Diana Johnson Talks Drink Spiking in our area!
Police have recently been investigating after a 20-year-old woman says she was left unconscious after being “spiked” during a night out in Beverley. They are appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident, which took place at The Beaver pub in North Bar Within in the early hours of Sunday morning, to get in touch.
Megan Bucknall was drinking with friends and says she recalls feeling a needle prick in her arm; subsequently becoming unwell and needing medical treatment. In a statement, Humberside Police said: “We are investigating a reported spiking at a venue on North Bar Within. One woman was taken to hospital after becoming unwell. We take all reports of this type incredibly seriously and investigate each incident thoroughly. Our spiking protocol was followed and we are working with the woman and the venue to establish the circumstances surrounding the incident.”
Dame Diana Johnson is now calling for a new spiking law to keep people safe in pubs and clubs. She spoke to Rachael Campey recently on The Morning Mix.
