Missing tablets 'could prove fatal'.

POTENTIALLY lethal sedatives used to treat people with depression or sleep disorders have gone missing.

A total of 224 Diazepam tablets, which were in eight boxes of 28 pills each, were lost in Coventry city centre on Sunday afternoon. The empty packets were found close to Ash Green school near Coventry yesterday and handed in to staff.

Police have warned that taking too many of the Diazepam tablets could be fatal.

Pupils at Ash Green School have been alerted in case they find the tablets. Anyone who finds them should take them to police, a doctor's surgery or pharmacy.
