A London boy, age 16 died after a suspected ecstasy overdose at an illegal London rave, two men were arrested over the supply of drugs.

A teacher of the teenage boy stated, “He was a bright boy, he was an articulate boy, he was a boy of huge potential. He was going to go far.” Sadly, this is a reality happening all over the world.
