A woman who became critically ill after taking drugs at the Warehouse Project in Manchester is recovering well, police have said.

Greater Manchester Police said the 32-year-old was now "sitting up and talking" after the incident on Friday.

A 32-year-old man has been arrested and bailed on drug possession and supply charges.

The previous weekend, a 30-year-old man from Gloucestershire who collapsed at the same venue later died in hospital.

Increased security

The force is investigating whether a "bad batch" of drugs caused the death of Nick Bonnie, from Stroud. A further 15 people needed hospital treatment.

The club has increased security and has an on-site doctor for emergencies.

From 12 October, the club will take part in a Home Office scheme to test suspected illegal substances seized on the premises in a laboratory.
