A woman who believes she was spiked with a needle has been left ‘disappointed’ by the police’s investigation after she was told CCTV was “too long to look through”.
Lazy cops? Maybe.
The 19-year old had been out celebrating Halloween with friends and she visited: The Brewery Tap, on Ock Street; The Grapes, on High Street; The Kings Head and Bell, on St Helen Street and Crown and Thistle, on Bridge Street.
Miss Hargreaves realised she may have been spiked when she started to feel unwell...
She described being ‘dazed out’ and she was unable to walk the 20 minute journey back to where they live together as she was ‘really wobbly’, so she had to be ‘pushed home in a trolley’.
Isn't that pretty normal for a teenager's pub crawl?
Miss Hargreaves added she provided the police with a urine sample but it did not get tested as it was too long after the incident.
I rather think you were taking, not giving, love!
My opinion is, this spiking fad is mostly mass hysteria and psychosis.
Worked in pubs for years and never seen a genuine example of a drink being spiked. I'm sure all this needle stuff is just as rubbish. In my experience, anyone claiming to have been spiked was simply pissed of their head on Jagerbombs
Folk don't actually go round pubs and clubs anonymously giving away free drugs
There are cases of people spiking drinks with stuff like Rohypnol, but that is to separate them from their friends, get them out of the club and rape them. It happens, but it's very rare. It's not every other fat whap on a Friday night
Everybody thinks CCTV footage is a magic bullet. Imagine sitting through hours and hours of footage of this drunken bint in numerous pubs on the off-chance that the police might spot someone brushing past her and jabbing her in the arm. Then by some miracle they get a grainy picture which may or may not be good enough for an identification.Then an ambulance-chaser will easily disprove in court.
Not worth it.
"My opinion is, this spiking fad is mostly mass hysteria and psychosis."
Spot on, I suspect. Hypodermics are harder to conceal and wield than pills.

Drugs are costly, but most pubs do 2 for 1 deals on alcohol.. 😉
"Everybody thinks CCTV footage is a magic bullet."
Just like DNA. Because the CCTV on 'CSI' is always crystal clear!
