BBC investigation finds class C drugs are being sold on social media

Dealers are using Facebook to sell performance-enhancing drugs that can cause severe side effects, a BBC investigation found.

BBC Inside Out found a product called Prostasia (which is an anabolic steroid) is advertised on Facebook, along with branded merchandise.

Facebook said it tackled any "illegal activity" as soon as it was alerted.

It is also an offence to make, advertise or sell the Class C drug. The offence carries an unlimited fine and can result in a prison sentence.
