Nitazenes, believed to have been smuggled by criminals into the UK from China, are man-made drugs that mimic the effects of opioids such as heroin.

They are mixed with other drugs to create much stronger and often fatal results.

In addition to using heroin, they are also dabbling in cocaine and anti-anxiety drugs, such as Xanax, that can be easily purchased online.

That means people don't always know they're using the substances, which can be up to 300 times stronger than heroin and fentanyl, a leading killer in the US.

The power of nitazenes is great and they are known as "Frankenstein" drugs.

Ministers are now calling for nitazene to become a Class A drug, like cocaine, ecstasy and heroin./ CNA
