POLICE are today warning Suffolk drug addicts to be alert after the deaths of a man and a woman from suspected overdoses.

Officers were called to an address in London Road South, in Lowestoft at 11.30am after the bodies of a 28-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman were found in a room there.

Though not thought to be suspicious at this stage there was evidence of drug talking in the room, officers said.

Detective chief inspector Phil Aves said: “While we are still investigating these unexplained deaths there was drugs paraphernalia including needles, found around the bodies which would seem to indicate possible overdoses.

“Until we have the results of toxicology tests we cannot be certain of the cause of death but we need to warn other drug users of the potential dangers.

“It is possible there may be a 'bad batch' of drugs in circulation and this could pose a risk to users.”
