Lincoln clubgoers tested for illegal substances

Police used portable drug testing kits to test clubbers as they came through the door

Clubgoers in Lincoln have been tested to see if they've taken any illegal substances, as part of a police operation.

In what Lincolnshire Police say is just the first of many similar events, people going into Circle on Silver Street on Saturday night had their hands swabbed and tested by officers posted at the door.

If they tested positive they were spoken to by officers and then searched.

Similar operations are to be carried out at other venues over the next few weeks.
