Police investigating the death of a teenage girl after she took an ecstasy pill have arrested two people.

Faye Allen suffered an adverse reaction after apparently taking a pill nicknamed “MasterCard” while on a night out in Manchester.

Officers were called to Victoria Warehouse in Trafford in the early hours of Monday morning but the 17-year-old died in hospital a short time later.

A 19-year-old man and a 20-year-old woman arrested in the St Helens area are being held on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class A drug.

Detective Chief Inspector Ben Ewart of Greater Manchester Police’s Trafford Division said: “Our thoughts and condolences remain with the family of this girl at this heart-breaking time.

“We have made two arrests in connection with this investigation and currently have a man and a woman in custody who will be questioned later today.

“Sadly, we know that other people will have taken this form of ecstasy, known as ‘MasterCard’, and we are continuing to urge anybody who may have taken it to please get themselves checked out.
