Nick Thomas-Symonds responds to reports of women being spiked by needle at night clubs

Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Labour’s Shadow Home Secretary, responding to reports of women being spiked by needle at night clubs, said:

“The reports of this vile act are terrifying – and yet another example of the appalling violence faced by women and girls, day in day out.

“This awful crime needs to be clamped down on without delay. That must involve bringing together the police, venues, universities and – crucially – listening to women who have been attacked. The Home Secretary should deliver action without delay, to help prevent this happening again, bring those responsible justice and ensure they face the full force of the law.”
