A man has admitted supplying revellers at a party with Ecstasy pills that made them ill.

Kyle Stenhouse, 21, supplied friends at Westhill in Aberdeenshire in December last year.

Several men, including one who was foaming at the mouth, ended up being taken to hospital.

Stenhouse admitted being concerned in the supply of the Class A drug when he appeared at Aberdeen Sheriff Court. Sentence was deferred.

Fiscal depute Alan Townsend said the friends had been drinking at the property on Westhill Crescent before the incident in the early hours of the morning.

He said: "They continued to drink alcohol within the locus and at that time the accused produced a bag of red 'MasterCard' tablets.

"The accused offered these tablets to the witnesses all of whom took them along with him."

The court heard that Stenhouse and his friends began to feel unwell and light-headed shortly after taking the tablets in the suburb on the outskirts of Aberdeen.

One of his friends suffered the worst reaction, he appeared to take a seizure and started foaming at the mouth.

Paramedics were called out and further ambulances were requested.

Sheriff Christine McCrossan deferred sentence for background reports.
