A warning has been issued by police in Glasgow after drugs were stolen from a dental practice in the city.
Police issued a statement saying that the medication could cause serious, potentially fatal side-effects, and appealed for information about the theft, which occurred at Thornliebank Health Centre on Kennishead Road.
