A staggering one in three Nottingham female students say their drink has been spiked on a night out.
Royhpnol is a tranquilliser that is also referred to as the date rape drug, or ‘roofie’. It can come in the form of liquid, pill or powder.
Most common symptoms after taking this drug include feeling drowsy, drunker than expected, memory loss and nausea or vomiting.
People often assume they have drank far too much and not spot the common signs that they have been drugged.
Young women are encouraged by the NHS not to accept drinks from someone they don’t know, and to never to leave their drink unattended.
