An inquest will open and adjourne today into the death of a potential M-Cat victim in Norton.

The body of Lois Waters was found on Monday.

Her friends have revealed she was taking the legal high upto 48 hours before her death.

The 24 year old's mothers discribed her as "a lovely girl".

Detective Chief Inspector Nigel Costello of Malton CID's told Minster FM "we would like to warn people about the use of the drug and its potentially lethal consequences."

Meanwhile, the government's chief drugs adviser, Les Iversen, has indicated that his panel will recommend m-cat be made illegal.

Professor Iversen said he expected a recommendation to be made to the Home Secretary next Monday when the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs meets to consider the issue.
