A warning has been issued by Britain's well-known toxicologists after Phenazepam was found in the blood of nine people who died in Scotland due to drug overdose.   

Dr Peter Maskell, of the University of Dundee, cautioned, "Phenazepam use in the UK is on the rise. It can be obtained legally on the internet and is being used as a replacement for other drugs. Doctors should be aware of both the availability and use of phenazepam in the UK."
