Scotland’s drug deaths crisis

Scotland Correspondent



We can reveal the major drugs plight of Dundee in Scotland, a city where the scale of drugs deaths is greater than anywhere in the UK, which in turn has by far the highest death rate in the European Union.

Channel 4 News has learnt that in January alone there were 12 suspected drug-related deaths in the city, leading to fears that this year could be the worst on record.

In an exclusive report, we meet the families of two women who died from a drug overdose in the last three months, and the addicts who fear for their own lives.
