A well-being officer at the University of Lincoln told MPs how educating sixth-formers can help tackle drug spiking in the city - as a Nottingham student described the practice as "sadistic."

Julie Spencer, head of student well-being at the University of Lincoln, has worked there for 20 years and was invited to tell the Home Affairs committee how students at the university are feeling and how this issue can be challenged.

She was speaking at an inquiry into drink spiking at the Houses of Commons on Wednesday, January 12.

Ms Spencer was part of a panel that followed another which involved Zara Owen, 20, who told Nottinghamshire Live in October she believed she'd been spiked by a needle while on a night out at the city's Pryzm nightclub.

Ms Owen told MPs she thought people did it for "comedic effect" and described it as "sadistic."
