DRUG arrests of Britons in Spain have soared, with an incredible 68% increase on the previous year.
In total, 708 Brits have been arrested overseas on drug charges already this year – a shocking 173 of which were in Spain, according to the UK’s Foreign Office.
A worrying trend is the reported rise in the use of a party drug named ‘Cannibal’ – due to its tendency to dramatically increase aggressiveness.
It is apparently being distributed widely in parts of Spain, including the Balearics.
A British man was arrested in Magaluf, after biting beachgoers while high on the drug.
The rapid rise in drug-related arrests is due to a serious crackdown on dealers launched by police this year.
The second-largest number of drug arrests involving Britons last year was in America, with 102 cases.
