Police have named three men who died separately in just over an hour in Lancashire in what officers believe are heroin-related incidents.
Detectives said that a strong batch of the drug being sold on the streets of north-east Lancashire may have caused the deaths on Friday and Saturday.
Robin Ferguson, 53, Emlyn Hodgkinson, 36, and Zaheer Chaudrey, 32, were found at separate addresses after 2315 GMT.
Post-mortem examinations have not yet been carried out on the men.
Mr Ferguson was found at a house in Tennis Street, Burnley, at 2315 and 20 minutes later the body of Mr Hodgkinson was discovered by officers at Oak Street, Colne."all that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing" Edmund Burke.

It is sad, but, this wouldn't be big news in some places in the US of A. Drugs are so rampant it is scary. As so often happens, the drugs lead to the killings. In o ur area, most of the shootings are over drugs. It may be in bad taste, but it does save the cost of a trial, at least for one of the parties.

I have personally worked more heroin OD's than I can even remember. The record is bringing one guy back from respiratory arrest 5 times, but I figure he was trying to kill himself.
