A TEENAGER who was rushed to hospital after her drink was spiked claims there is an epidemic of drug-taking at Inverness Campus, and bosses there are not doing enough to combat it.

Rose Scott, who is studying an HNC in applied science and wants to be a doctor, spoke to the Courier in a bid to lift the lid on what she described as a “catalogue of failures” to stamp out drug use in halls.
