"Incidents of drink-spiking are rare but we would advise people never to accept drinks from a stranger and only allow someone you trust to buy them. Don't leave your drink unattended and if a drink has an unusual taste, smell or appearance, then leave it. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Ross police station on 0300 333 3000 quoting 11S 281012."
