Sarah Buckle, a student at the University of Nottingham, believes she was spiked by injection while out clubbing with friends during freshers' week. She describes becoming aware of her surroundings in hospital the next morning with a 'black hole in my memory', with no idea of what had happened to her during the night. Medics told her she showed signs of having been spiked. It was then that she noticed a small pinprick on her hand, which was bruised and throbbing. 'It’s really difficult to prove anything, especially when victims don’t remember anything. The memory loss is so extreme,' Buckle said. Figures released on Wednesday revealed 56 incidents of spiking by injection were reported to forces in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland in September and October, in addition to 198 confirmed reports of drink spiking.
