Nitrous Oxide Gas
We have been advised that members of the local community have been finding discarded micro cannisters. Humberside Police have issued a health warning in respect of the recreational use of Nitrous Oxide which can have serious risk including:
Loss of Blood Pressure , Heart Attack, Fainting, Bone Marrow Suppressions, Difficulty Breathing and/or Poisoning of the Central Nervous System.
The above risk can increase if combined with alcohol or other drugs. Our advice is clear : "DO NOT INHALE THIS SUBSTANCE AND SEEK MEDICAL ADVICE IF CONSUMED."
It is an offence to supply, or offer to supply a psychoactive substance under the Psychoactive Substance Act 2016, which could lead to a sentence of up to 7 years imprisonment.
The local team have not found any children with these but if they do, they will ensure that the parents are aware.
