Uni students targeted by drug dealers using social media to hunt 'fresh prey'

Uni students across the UK are being targeted by drug dealers who use social media to peddle their deadly wares, a Mirror probe reveals.

Instagram and Snapchat are used to contact first years within days of their arrival at halls of residence. They are invited to “direct message” to find a catalogue of the drugs on offer.

The shocking findings come after three students died in Newcastle. Jeni Larmour, of Newtownhamilton, Co Armagh, Northern Ireland, lost her life in a suspected ketamine tragedy along with another 18-year-old girl at the city’s university.

A Northumbria University student, 21, also died after he had apparently taken MDMA. Freshers received cards from dealers slipped under their door within days of arrival this week.
