Police have made 10 arrests after four young people - three of them students - died taking drugs at the weekend.

Two women, both 18, from Newcastle University, died after taking ketamine, Northumbria Police said.

An 18-year-old man, who was not a student, and a 21-year-old Northumbria University undergraduate in Newcastle also died after taking MDMA, the force said.

Northumbria Police have launched a large-scale investigation. Police have since carried out a number of consent-based room searches at student accommodation with drugs dogs.

More patrols were being carried out on Monday.
