A teenager has been arrested in connection with alleged drugs offences after two boys were taken to hospital after taking what may have been a "Mortal Kombat" ecstasy tablet.

A 16-year-old boy was last night in intensive care and a 17-year-old was discharged after tests.

Both teenagers were taken to Monklands Hospital, Airdrie, at 11.30pm on Saturday after falling ill after a house party in Coatbridge, North Lanarkshire.
