A woman is critically ill in hospital after taking drugs at a nightclub in Trafford, Manchester.

The 32-year-old woman started to feel ill after taking drugs at the Warehouse Project on Friday, police said.

A 32-year-old man was arrested on suspicion of possession of and supplying drugs before being bailed.

It follows the death of a 30-year-old man from Gloucestershire, who collapsed at the same venue and later died in the early hours of last Saturday.

Greater Manchester Police are investigating whether a "bad batch of drugs" caused the death of Nick Bonnie, from Stroud, and left 15 others needing hospital treatment last weekend.

The club has since increased security and now has a doctor on-site in case of any emergencies.

The woman contacted the doctor when she started to feel ill and was taken to hospital for treatment.

Ch Supt Mark Roberts said: "Anyone found to be dealing drugs at The Warehouse Project, or any other venues across Manchester, can expect to be arrested and will feel the full weight of the law upon them - we simply will not tolerate it."
