Dangerous sedative stolen from courier van in Colnbrook

A consignment of a potentially lethal sedative has gone missing from a van which was stolen in Berkshire.

The courier vehicle was stolen from Poyle Road, Colnbrook, on 29 December.

When it was recovered, some of its contents were missing, including a parcel of Epistatus, a powerful drug used to control seizures in children.

Police are warning people not to misuse the drug, saying 1ml could cause severe drowsiness and a 5ml teaspoon could cause severe respiratory problems.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Thames Valley Police.
