Suicide boy faces charges

A teenager who tried to kill himself by overdosing on heroin is to be prosecuted. The boy locked himself in a toilet, telling friends he wanted to be left alone.

Police stormed the toilet after the friends ignored the teenager’s wished. The boy was found unconscious, but emergency service staff managed to save his life.

The teenager now faces charges of drug possession. The boy has protested against the decision to prosecute, telling police “it does more harm than good.”
