about spike report

Introducing Spike Report, a spiking database to protect you and your mates on a night out. After recent incidents, we realised there was no viewable database on spikings in the UK. You can report an incident to the police, but you can’t view what others have reported.

With Spike Report, you can report a spiking incident but also view what others have submitted. Search by venue, city, or method of spiking. We’re all about giving you the info you need to have the safest night possible - including the date of the spiking so you know when it happened, where and how.

I was out for a work meal with friends and having some drinks. I remember everything clearly up until I went to cuckoo. One of the last things I remember is being in this venue. I don’t remember being put in a taxi, the car ride itself. i then got chucked out of the taxi near my house, my phone had been stolen and i couldn’t physically walk. I took my shoes off and left them there and I don’t remember how I got home. Our cctv showed it was a good samaritan who must have picked me up but I don’t remember who it was and I have been ill and sick many times for over two days now. i believe i was spiked in this venue by drink because of the memory loss and being unable to walk

I was out with my friends, and as a normally very vigilant it’s the one time I put my drink down and turned away to dance. The venue is more of a pub/bar than a club. I remember fragments and some of it is hazy, but I remember having this sudden sensation of “I’ve been spiked” something was wrong, I needed air and space so I went uostairs to the bathroom. I left and collapsed by the bannister, struggling to breathe. I was hyperventilating, my brain and thoughts felt very scattered and I was struggling to even think. I then have a blank in my memory, and the next thing I remember is waking up outside the venue, lying on the ground with a street ranger and my friends around me. A housemate who wasn’t with us hadn’t drank that night so was able to collect me, but I was very mixed in temperatures, flitting between hot and cold. I always drink water after a night out, but my friends tell me I refused to. One friend dragged their mattress upstairs and stayed with me overnight as I was so upset. I struggled to sleep, struggling with temperature and when I did finally wake up I was really really cold, shivering a lot etc. Following the whole incident, I called my mum who drove across the country and went with me to the hospital for a test. They refused and said that they didn’t do them there (despite us having phoned up 111, who directed us to the hospital). We then contacted the police who said that they couldn’t provide a test either and that without such a test it would be tricky to get a conviction. We asked if there was anywhere we could go privately, willing to pay for a test if it could get the conviction and the perpetrator could be stopped. The police actively dissuaded us from doing so, stating that there would be a lot of CCTV to go through so it was unlikely anything would be found. This is despite my friends and I having created a very coherent timeframe of the entire night, knowing exactly where the drink was placed and narrowing it down to a 20 minute window. I asked whether I could look through it and the police said that if I contacted the venue, I would be allowed to view it under GDPR. My mother and I then went to the venue, we were told to return in two days when the manger would be in. My mum had to go home, and two days later I went with my friends instead and the manager point-blank refused to let me see the footage unless I had a policeman with me, despite my being in the footage. I can’t remember the timeline here, but I was later left a voicemail by the police saying that they were not persuing it further.

I left my drink on the small table to go outside for a fag. I’ve been going to reflex for ages and never had anything bad happen when leaving my drink on the side. You have to or the security tell you to go back inside with it. I had a pint and a single Malibu drink before this particular one. I finished my drink and within 30 minutes I was feeling sick and dizzy with my head in the toilet. I had passed out for around an hour/ an hour and a half when someone found me in the toilet. I was unable to speak or stand up properly. I was freezing cold and couldn’t find any of my friends as they thought I went home. I ended up finding my boyfriend and was felt horrific the next day as well. Worst experience of my life. I’m very careful when going outside now. I’ll either finish my drink or ask a friend who doesn’t smoke to wait with the drinks.

My two friends popped their drinks down for 2 minutes and one of them spotted a short light haired guy pouring a powder into our drinks. We confronted him, he told us it was an accident. We took the drinks to the bar and asked for a kit to test for drugs, they didn’t have one and told security, who held the man in the club until the police came about 20 minutes later. We gave statments and were kept updated. Our drinks tested positive for drugs when the police tested them. He was also seen on CCTV. They released him Sunday morning due to being unable to 100% confirm it was him on CCTV so he’s on bail until the forensics come back with clothing and drug swabs.

Went to Queen's Court and Fibre, ordered one drink and a shot in Queens Court, then had one drink at Fibre. All of a sudden my friend started being violently sick, was incontinent, went limp, was drifting in and out of consciousness. Luckily the staff at Fibre were so nice, the bouncers took my friend into the back area and looked after her, they gave her wager and foil blankets to keep warm and phoned an ambulance. Unfortunately I couldn't get her to A and E by myself as I couldn't carry her, and no taxis would take her. One of the bouncers actually drove us to A and E himself which was so helpful. The next day my friend noticed a scratch and a pin prick mark on the inside of her arm. We'd been so careful with our drinks that night and not spoken to or danced with any guys so I think someone had brushed past her and injected her.

I only had 4 drinks so when I started throwing up foam I knew I had been spiked. I think I was injected due to two small injection looking marks on my arm. I was fine at 1:15am but by 2am I was in the toilets uncontrollably throwing up. My speech was very slurred and I felt very out of breath from just sitting on the floor. There was a female bouncer who came into the toilets and helped my friend carry me out of the club. She carried me out the back way so no one had to see the state I was in. Once we were in outside, I sat on the floor as I started throwing up again. By this point, I couldn’t even hold my head up, I couldn’t see as everything was a blurr and then I started throwing up foam. I was in and out of it, I didn’t know what was going on. I was throwing up a lot of foam. Luckily, my friend did not leave my side for a second so I got home safely.

Spiked with ketamine, frothing at the mouth, passed out in the toilet. Bar and security staff presumed I was too drunk and called the police. Police contacted ambulance service and I had an overnight stay in JPH where the staff were horrid until I told them what I suspected had happened, then full body examination and police report completed.

So I went with my two mates to Shanghai Club for Tao Saturday, never usually go to Shanghai on a Saturday but as a few of my pals who work at Bourbon had the night off thought it was an idea, they never showed up because of person reasons. But I took my two pals out to the smoking area outside the club, before I said that I asked two boys “look after my drink please” to which they said yeah but I came back in five minutes later to collect my drink as I couldn’t take it outside and tbh I felt fine to begin with, that was all about to change. My pal who shall remain nameless works at WhyNot and she came with her pals for a few drinks and we left at finishing time to go to afters but I started to come out with a lot of nonsense talk which at first I thought was just the alcohol but I started to get headaches when I got back to the flat and I started walking in a completely awkward way, it had well kicked in by morning. I woke up with no memory of what happened in the morning at an after party in Chesser near Slateford and when I tried to walk down the road to go to the ASDA I was feeling sores all over and my lips went completely inflamed I couldn’t remember where I was or who I was on the phone to, then I started getting migraines after. That’s when I knew I had been spiked.

Out for the night in a few pubs around town, didn’t drink much before but then after 2 pints in the masonic i lost absolutely all recollection of anything, vomited alot and have been told that i walked back into town which is the complete wrong direction for me to get home, I did fortunately make it home however I literally remember being in the masonic late evening…and the next thing I remember is waking up at home the next day. Not to tarnish the reputation of the masonic it’s a good pub with good staff and the regulars are all great. Just obviously that night a bad bunch come in. I know which group of lads it was in there. Be seriously careful when out. You hear about spiking and never expect it to happen to you but it’s such a high risk. Look after and look out for your friends and never leave any of them. Ensure everyone in your group has means of getting home be that a taxi, a lift, or walking with a friend. I’ve only just reported this now as i wanted to keep quiet about it, I’m a grown man and it had me down at my knees as vulnerable as anything. But seeing everything else going on people just need to be aware of the massive risk of it. Take care all.

Stood at the bar in Fever, not had many drinks and only had 1 drink in Fever. I wasn’t aware I’d been spiked at the time but I backed out and can’t remember a thing from that point on. My friend, who isn’t from around Shrewsbury, had to look after me. I was lay on the ground, police just walking past me and my friend not offering her any help. Couple of days later I noticed a small bruise on my back, seeked medical advice where they told me it was where a needle had been.

It wasn’t me who got spiked, but I had finished work and was about to go out drinking with my boyfriend and his friend who we both work with. I got to Amigos which is where they were getting some chips and nuggets. My boyfriend looked at me as I tapped his knee and immediately started puking all over the floor. This is extremely unlikely for my boyfriend as he has a high tolerance towards alcohol. We didn’t think anything of it as we just thought he’d had too many shots. His friend wasn’t puking, so I again assumed he hadn’t drank as much as my boyfriend did. My boyfriend, after puking in amigos in town, left town and I took him home after taking his friend home. We got home, he sat on the sofa and was gagging quite a bit. I got him this spare plastic tub we had and he wasn’t sick in that, but he was sick in the toilet and it was A LOT. And when I say a lot, I mean, it could’ve probably filled the entire bottom of a ceramic bath. It was horrible but I managed to get him to bed a couple hours after napping on the sofa. He was fine the next day but realised when he was getting dressed for work that he had a needle mark on the back of his leg. He didn’t feel it, never knew it happened. And that’s what scares me now. How many other people are dealing with this without actually knowing? Always take your friends home❤️

On Saturday the 12th of March, I was in (Apollo) in Newbridge, I got there about 9:30pm, I had three vodkas, and from 11:30pm, I have no memory at all. I have no recollection of anything that happened between 11:30pm and 5am. I ended up in Naas Hospital at approx. 5:45am because I had been having seizures since approx 3:25am, my entire body was having fits during this time, my eyes were rolling to the back of my head, my heart rate was sky rocketing, I was hyperventilating which lead to me loosing consciousness on and off. Around the last 30/45 minutes of this reaction I was fully aware of what was happening to me/who was around/what people were saying, but I had no control over my body, I wasn’t able to stop any of this, I wasn’t able to speak, I let out a cry here and there but that was all I could manage. As soon as I arrived to Naas Hospital, the paramedics started to describe my symptoms, and were very briefly asked “Did she come from Swifts/Apollo?” I was the fifth girl brought in that night. FIVE girls, in ONE night, from ONE nightclub. This is not okay. They ran tests, and they came out clear, they didn’t test me any further, I was sent home. The doctors and nurses believed myself and all the other girls that were brought in on Saturday night were spiked too. I had no idea what I had been given the night before, I had no idea how long the side effects would last.

I was at a gig at the Uni of Leeds Union. Left mine and my friends drink on the windowsill as I went to call her over as she was in the crowd and I didn’t want to spill the drinks. We drank the same amount the whole night and we didn’t have much at all as she was sobered up by the end of the night. After that drink, I lost my memory, had trouble with balance so I fell over a lot and have a lot of bruising on my body. I didn’t realise I was spiked since I completely forgot everything. The morning after I didn’t have a hang over and my head felt perfectly fine, since I didn’t drink much alcohol. However my body was aching a lot, and still is 2 days after. Had to spend the whole day in bed yesterday. The spiking happened at about 9pm or a bit later. The security said to my friend that I should see a medic, but my friend was just trying to sober me up instead, which obviously didn’t work since I wasn’t drunk.

Was out with friends for college RAG week. I had 3 drinks and 2 shots, which is normal for me to be able to drink more. When in scraggs in Carlow after those drinks I started to feel my head go fuzzy and then there’s about a 3 hour gap I think where I’ve no memory of anything. My friends brought me home because I couldn’t stand straight and fell twice. Once I was brought hope I started slowly becoming aware of what was around me. One of my housemates had given me a bucket, water and toast because she didn’t know what was wrong. Even in this half awake stat I knew something didn’t feel right so I went to bed, but couldn’t really feel my body moving. I knew I was going bed but I didn’t feel I had complete control. I woke up 5 hours later and my head was clearer but I felt my body was heavy, my brain felt kind of foggy and I was itchy on my body. My friends helped me with pictures the following day ask which I could remember so we could try figure out roughly when we think I was spiked. Another friend said that because it had been so long whatever was given to me was probably out of my system and no point getting bloods.

I was spiked by a man 5.6-5.8 and blonde/brown hair. He was stood at the bar and bought a large round of drinks and offered me one. I stupidly accepted and cannot recall anything 10mins later. I'm lucky a friend got me home safely. Very scary experience. Apparently I was acting very disinhibited, when I'm usually the opposite. I've tried to report to police, but they haven't turned up twice now as I guess they are very busy.

me and my friend were out alone and a group of a few boys were near us for most of the night but we didn’t think much of it at first. They sat near us when me and my friend went to sit down and call/message back some of our other friends. Once we had done that we stood up to go get a water and go out into the smoking area, so we drank both our drinks that we had left on our table (which we didn’t really pay too much attention to as they were so close to us). When we were at the bar getting water the group of boys also got up to go to the bar before following us out into the smokers a couple of minutes after we went out and kept trying to talk and get near us for about 10 mins despite us telling them to leave and my friend physically pushing them away. As we were going outside though my friend started feeling weird and this followed with me about 10 mins later feeling the same. We have some videos that we sent to friends and our voices are not normal in them and we were making no sense, nor do we remember sending anyone anything. I’m not sure about my friends but my legs felt numb and weird to the point where I couldn’t get up and we had to stay outside sat down for a while before we called a friend and he sorted an Uber out for us, but we don’t remember getting to the Uber, into it or at least half of the journey home. It was only the next day when we were talking to each other, checked our bank statements (to see how many drinks we had got to be in the states we were, which worked out at 3 each over the course of 2 hours) and reading the things we sent and watching the videos that we realised something was not right and figured out what could have happened.

it’s still a fresh and sensitive subject for me ……….but on Friday 4th February I went to see Notion at a Bass6ix event at Freedom Mills and I was spiked by injection. I went from being the sober one looking after my friends (because I had work the next day I didn’t want to go overboard) to becoming more intoxicated than them within a few seconds and very quickly. I only had a few tinnies of red stripe and suddenly started feeling extremely unwell, everything was spinning, I couldn’t control my movement and I was stumbling about falling all over the place, I kept going in and out of consciousness and passing out even though I could hear my mates telling me to snap out of it I couldn’t stop myself or control it, I was throwing up a lot throughout, I couldn’t see anything properly, there are blackout moments in my memory where I don’t remember a thing, I was slurring my words and overall just lost all control of myself and my actions but my head was still in the right place and I was so confused what was happening to me. I remember thinking to myself at the time “oh my god nilu I swear u didn’t drink that much”. I was slurring my words telling my mates I wanted an ambulance and that I thought I was going to die. My friends 💖 came back home with me and helped me. 💖 No one has ever seen me in that state before. I’ve never even been in that state before. It was so scary. It wasn’t until the next day when I woke up really confused, I considered if I had been spiked. I checked my body and noticed a scratch and two red dots (that started to bruise the day after) that I’ve never seen before on my thigh and it looked fairly new as it was still a bit red around it and inflamed. I ended up going to A&E for a blood test and a vaccine. Thankfully they told me everything will be fine and I should be safe but I just wanted to spread the word because I’ve heard so many stories like this and I never thought it would happen to me and trust me it is scarier than I thought it would be. It’s been a tough one unfortunately. P.S. I have contacted the venue and they will be looking through CCTV footage to see if anything suspicious is caught on camera. In the meantime pls pls pls be aware of this and never leave your mates on their own. I was so grateful I had mine 💖 I also have a black mark appear on my lip and I never had anything like that before. I did some research and it said certain medications like antipsychotics can cause dark spots on lips and obviously antipsychotics are also used for spiking. I’m no doctor but I know myself and everything that’s happened to me has been so unusual since the night of the event. The police were going to refuse me a drug test because I was at a rave and got spiked and they weren’t going to follow up the case, but after begging them they done one anyway and chose to help I’m not sure if they actually did ever get in contact with the cctv or not. I haven’t had an update on what’s happened but all I know is that they logged my information and csi took a photo of me and my leg and hopefully my info and description can help the next girl who gets spiked actually be able to prosecute. I contacted the venue and they told me the position I was stood gave a restricted view to cctv and it wouldn’t catch the act of needle spiking anyway cos it’s so sly especially in a crowd of jumping people in the dark with flashing lights and smoke detectors. I was also told due to me being 5”3 I was too small to be seen on CCTV. I don’t know what the point of cctv even is if it doesn’t catch anything when ur in a crowd. Descriptions were gave. No one was identified. No one was arrested. 2 suspects were given. There’s never enough evidence with cases like this.

Was just having a couple of drinks and then there’s a clear moment when I don’t remember a thing until I wake up the next morning around 5am. There was no real warning other than thinking I felt a little more drunk than I should before I blacked out. I didn’t even know I’d been spiked till my mum told me the next day. I have no memory, I was talking gibberish and had exaggerated mood swings, I lost control of my legs and had to be carried to my front door where my mum then had to carry me to the sofa, my pupils were dilated and my eyes were flickering and I was extremely confused. Luckily the bar staff did eventually realise something wasn’t right and looked after us and contacted someone to get me and my friend home safe but I have no recollection of anything that happened between around 10:30pm - 6am when i woke up so I don’t know what happened during that time period at all other than what I’ve been told.

I had a couple sips of my drink at this bar and not long after I collapsed on the floor, the staff and owner didn’t want anything to do with it, neither did they help at any point. I was taken to another bar across the road and they helped and phoned an ambulance, I eventually got taken to hospital where I was put on a drip. I don’t remember anything from the bar that night I was completely unconscious.

15 minutes after my friend drank her drink from Noho and while we were on our way to another bar, she lost the ability to hold herself up, she vomited multiple times, we ended up calling an ambulance and she was treated in A and E. She was clearly spiked as she had only had two drinks at this point in the night. Despite telling the paramedics and doctors that she had been spiked, the hospital neglected to take a blood sample from her.

My boyfriend was spiked. We managed to get him home but he was acting like he was having a stroke. I rang for an ambulance who were very unsympathetic asking why he would be targeted and who would 'waste money' on spiking him. I think they were targeting me as he drank one of my drinks when I'd had enough. They were no help and left me to care for him. He felt horrible for at least a week afterwards. We didn't report it to the police or the venue as we felt we wouldn't be taken seriously, thanks to the paramedics.

I was out drinking with a group of friends when we was approached by 2 men. After spending some time with them, they got us a booth and began to buy us drinks. after one or two of these drinks, I began to feel paralytic and don’t recall parts of the night. Because of the state I was in, I was then kicked out by the bouncers who did not give me time or an option to collect my personal belonging. I was then put in a taxi by my friend and sent home.

The spiking was only discovered when we got home, my boyfriend had drank my drink and it had been spiked. He doesn’t do drugs so it was obvious when he was acting strange. The ambulance were called however they didn’t show up for another 4 hours by which time we were ok. I have contacted the venue but had no response, no bags were searched on entry at all as stated in their anti spiking policy

Don't rly remember much. Just that I didn't have enough to drink to feel as fucked as I did. Just remember being led at the bottom of Park Street and then waking up on my friend's sofa. Pupils are rly dilated and feel very spaced out. Looked for injection marks but found nothing so definitely something in my drink. Club wasn't even half full either.

spiked by injection in my thigh only 10 mins after entering the club. felt it and told my friend who looked and saw the needle mark. collapsed approx 5 mins later on the dance floor and fell unconscious and couldn’t walk. was carried out by bouncers and my friends told them i was spiked by injection so they carried me into a “first aid room”. 2 “first aiders” who were just bouncers were shown my spike mark to which they dismissed me completely. told me i was “paranoid” and said the wound was old. gave me no actual medical attention or called for ambulance when i kept going unconscious and couldn’t even stand up or walk. carried me outside and left me on the pavement with my friends who didn’t know what to do. my family was never called (i’ve only just turned 19) nor was an ambulance. my friends had to carry me to their uni flat as i couldn’t walk and kept vomiting and falling unconscious. the club handled the whole thing awfully and have traumatised me. i ended up being taken to a&e by my dad in the morning to get medical attention and was given an injection to prevent disease from the needle. we have reported the incident to the police who are trying to get cctv footage as i think i know who did this to me- i also told the bouncers this and said they need to be searched in case they do it to someone else but they ignored me.

Me and 5 of my friends went clubbing in pryzm where one of my friends had been spiked. Everything was fine until all of a sudden she started feeling dizzy, shutting her eyes and couldn’t speak. We went to the toilet where she was sick after we came out and went back to dance where a man approached her and said she doesn’t look to well and said she needed to get out of there. She said no and he kept talking to her. We then went into the other bigger room where he had followed us. None of us realised this until the next morning on videos on our phones and where we had realised she has been spiked as she had an injection on her back.

I had gone out that night only had 4 drinks as I was up early for work I knew myself I was not drunk but as soon as I left the bar I was on a happy buzz but put it down to the alcohol hitting me all at once. Within 30-40 mins of being injected I was unresponsive to other people had no control over the movement of my head my eyes were rolling back or closing no matter how hard I tried to open them, I was aware of what was going on around me but could not speak properly to let people know something did not feel right, again my eyes wouldn’t open no matter how hard I tried so could no communicate properly. I also could not walk without help and could not sit up straight. Other people including bouncers just thought I was drunk but when I got to hospital the nurse had found the puncture mark of the needle. I’m very lucky and grateful I had amazing friends that night that knew something was wrong and contacted my mam and sister to get me help.

I believe my drink was spiked. I started feeling sick, vomiting, the room was strobbing, hallucinations, lost ability to speak and was physically weak. We had a lot to drink but this was nothing like being drunk. Reported it to the bar manager but they didn't really know what to do. Police said hospital could test to see what it might have been, but the hospital said they can't do them in their lab.

I’ve been spiked twice here and almost spiked a third time. The first time both me and a friend were spiked and we came to at the exact same time, somehow we had managed to get ourselves both back to my house but we don’t remember anything at all. The second time I knew what was going on but I couldn’t move my muscles or lift my head up etc. Luckily my friends got me home (my bag had also been stolen). One time I ordered a drink from the bar in the second room and my friend needed the toilet so we went straight from the bar to the bathroom and in the bathroom light I saw my vodka blue drink (which should have been neon blue) was actually green and murky. I poured it down the sink straight away so no one could drink it. I didn’t tell the venue about that as to me it seems pretty clear that someone working behind the bar is spiking girls drinks and I hate confrontation. Every time we have been spiked/almost spiked it was from drinks from the second bar. We are always careful with our drinks and never put them down anywhere also.

I felt a sharp pinch on my arm and asked my friend if she could see a mark and there was a puncture wound. I did not feel any effects so I don’t think they managed to inject anything. I spoke to the bouncer who was very dismissive and made me feel stupid.
