A woman has died from a suspected drug overdose in Angus, police have said.
The body of Lisa Deveres, 31, was found at an address in Forfar on Tuesday May 22. Police are treating her death as drug-related.
Senior Investigating Officer, DI Jim Smith confirmed that although there are no apparent suspicious circumstances, a report will be submitted to the Procurator Fiscal.
A spokesman for Tayside Police said: "This recent suspect drugs related death again highlights the dangers involved to people who use illicit drugs and as such I would urge anyone involved in the use of these drugs to seek medical assistance as soon as possible.
"Whilst most drugs users try to manage their own drug use various factors make drug misuse a very dangerous practice which is almost always harmful to health and can result in death.
"We would also like to give out a strong message that should anyone find another person in overdose then they should dial 999 immediately and summon medical assistance, they should also stay with the person until that assistance arrives.
"We appreciate that there is a fear within the drug using community that by calling for medical assistance it is likely the police will also be in attendance. We would reassure everyone that in such circumstances our first and foremost intention is to ensure that appropriate medical assistance is given."
Assistance for drug problems and information regarding the Take Home Naloxone initiative can be obtained from the Tayside Drug Problem Service on 01241 435820 or the Angus social work drug and alcohol team on 01241 435821.
