A dangerous batch of fake ecstasy pills may be in circulation, police in Scotland have warned.

Found at Scottish festival T in the Park, they've been described as green with a Rolex stamp on them, possibly the same as the ones containing para-Methoxyamphetamine (PMA) that caused 15 deaths in Scotland and Northern Ireland in 2013.

Police Scotland said: "Police Scotland has recovered a small number of Green Rolex-type pills at T in the Park and is warning festival goers to beware of any others that may be in circulation."

Although two people died at the festival over the weekend, these pills aren't believed to be the cause.

"Pills similar to these have caused serious harm in the past although there is no evidence at present to link these to any other incidents at the festival. People are reminded there is no safe way of taking drugs and T in the Park has a zero tolerance drugs policy."
