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.

At around midnight I got spiked I believe and I completely lost my memory. I didn't realise I was spiked until the day after. I have a huge graze on my knee and a scratch on my boob and I don't know how it happened. I also sent loads of videos to my friends and I don't remember doing it. I don't remember getting in the Uber home. I was very sick in the Uber and felt odd up until Thursday 6/7.

I went to the bar to collect another drink. I’d only had 3 drinks and was only slightly tipsy, my friends had seen me drunk after several more drinks and I had never been bad. I started to not know where I was and had all the symptoms of rohypnol spiking; nausea, disorientation, couldn't walk straight, etc. There was absolutely no support from the bouncers.

drink was spiked whilst on a night out with work friends; luckily friends noticed relatively quickly and got me back to the hotel we were staying at. i completely blacked out for hours, could not walk or raise my head and continuously vomiting (this has never happened to me, even when i have had significantly more to drink than i did this night). friends called an ambulance at 1am as i was vomiting in my sleep but it did not arrive until 5am, by which time i’d slept off the worst of it and come around. spent the next day continuously vomiting, with dizziness/nausea. contacted the venue and police, told both the time frame and exactly where i was in the bar for them to check CCTV. no response from the venue and police have advised there is not much they can do as the ambulance did not run blood tests when they attended my hotel room on the night of the spiking.

At a Taylor Swift themed night and my drink got spiked I was sick and the club medic had to look after me and use my emergency contacts to call my mum. The medics I think thought I was just very drunk but the next day I did not feel right and it was not just a hangover.

Early hours of Saturday morning in Wakefield I was on a night out with my mate. We went from reflex to after dark and then to truth. Whilst being in Truth I went from being okay to suddenly crippled in pain with my chest. The pain I experienced in my chest was actually terrifying and I was struggling to breathe. After this I woke up with 2 needle like marks in my hip and the following day I had confusion, clumsiness and nausea. Was not myself at all and I still don’t feel right. I’ve seen I wasn’t the only one possibly spiked Saturday morning and I just want to say to anyone who is out this weekend please be careful. Because I didn’t even feel it and I was being followed by a man most of the night who I had to report!!

It was our last night of our last term in our first year at Uni. Some of my flat mates had already gone home, so it was just myself and my two friends. I remember, it being all COVID restrictions, so we couldn’t get up and order at the bar, they came to us and we also couldn’t get up to dance, so we were sat on a bench. I was sat on the end of the bench, where someone could have walked past me going to their table, or it could have been the bartender as I obviously couldn’t watch my drink being made, therefore it is still unsure on who spiked me and how I got spiked. I remember we were all drinking cocktail pitchers, and I have videos and photos up until 8-9pm and then it all went blank. I had to recall details from my friend, at the first point when she noticed something was wrong, she said I needed to go to the loo but apparently when I attempted to get up, I couldn’t move and I mentioned this to her. She was confused so she helped me up. I was vomiting repeatedly, she had to get a bouncer to come and help me down. He or she carried me out. Then I myself remember sitting on the pavement, repeatedly saying sorry & how I am not drunk but I have been spiked. My friend was also speaking up for me mentioning this wasn’t me being drunk, I had been spiked. I remember it being a lady bouncer just staring at me. Then it goes blank again, and then a memory of being in the ambulance by myself (because of Covid, I wasn’t allowed anyone with me), I remember blacking in and out, texting my boyfriend who could make no sense of my messages, I could hear the two paramedics (one female, and one male) both talking to each other about how it could just be over intoxicated with drink, this is when I mentioned to him that I had been spiked, they didn’t really offer me much support. Then I was placed in a wheelchair, they took my blood pressure, then I got put in the emergency waiting room. I never got seen to. I met these lovely ladies in the waiting room, they helped me, got me water & phoned my mum for me as I wasn’t making any sense. My parents had to drive all the way from my hometown to the hospital which I got taken to Southport. My Mum eventually got here, she mentioned how she didn’t even recognise me & she kept asking the receptionist when I was going to be seen, she said they had an emergency come in & she wouldn’t know. After 3 hours or more of waiting, my mum just took me home, my dad also didn’t recognise me when I tried to get into the car. I went home, straight to bed & felt awful for days on end after. I now don’t drink at all, barely go out unless there’s an event on, I feel awful if I do drink, I never used to get sick or feel awful, before the spiking. I have long term effects physically and mentally. I also did report it to the police and my uni tutor because I wanted other girls at my uni to be aware of the club and to be careful. There were some reports about the club, that came out afterwards, one of them mentioned how the bartenders are known for spiking drinks & they have room in the club, where they assault, I showed this to my uni tutor. The police were the Lancashire police, I spoke to a female (which comforted me slightly until I realised I wasn’t getting any support from her anyway). At first, I didn’t want to mention it to the police but my mum did for me & then they wanted to speak to me. The police lady assumed I was drunk, and mentioned that when she went out with her friends she had one too many & it too felt “different”. I was very upset and angry with the little to no support I got from the police. I mentioned the reports from other people and my own story to her, to which they said they’ve never had an issue with this club. I couldn’t believe that as when we first started uni, the tutors actually told us to be very careful with Alpine, because it has been known. So I feel let down by the police, the hospital and the club.

At 8:40pm I started zoning out and was only out for 2 hours and I only had 4 drinks. I have videos on my phone of what was going on but I don’t recall taking them. One minute I was ok, dancing and having fun and the next I felt like I was going to throw up. I had to race to the bathroom to be sick. As I was walking to the bathroom, my walking wasn’t as good as I thought as the security guard was helping me walk straight. From going to the bathroom I could no longer walk or talk and would not stop throwing up. After that a woman security guard told me to ask someone to pick me up and she helped me text them. I text my mum at 20:50 and she got to me by 20:55. When she turned up she told me that I couldn’t stand or talk. I was being sick. She got me into the car with the help of the security guard. When we arrived home my mums partner had to lift and carry me out the car into the house. I was then led on the sofa where I had passed out. In the meantime my mum was calling 111 for advice. They advised her that I should be taken to the hospital if necessary and report the incident to the police. When I managed to get into bed I slept in the same bed as mum so she could keep an eye on me during the night. The next morning I woke up missing parts of the night, a bad headache, feeling sick, dizzy and very exhausted.

I was spiked in kioki this Saturday, we had only been in one place before there and only stayed in kioki for 2 drinks before leaving as it was so full but can’t remember anything from half way through my second drink. I can’t even recall leaving the club but as soon as we walked out the door I was told I collapsed on the floor. I was in and out of consciousness not being able to feel my legs or see a thing, I didn’t know what was happening around me until I woke up with drips in the hospital. The only thing I vaguely remember was being led on the floor with a male and a female trying to talk to me and comforting me and was told they did this until an ambulance came.

I was sitting in a booth and only had two drinks, both of these drinks were ordered to the table. Somehow from the bar to the table I had been spiked. The security guard was absolutely appalling she was swearing at me and was treating me like i was a drunk.

I went out with a group of friends and can't remember anything past queuing at the bar for a drink as soon as I got in. I assume I got spiked through a drink as I had no needle marks but I don't know who would have done it as I didn't put the drink down and none of my friends would have done it. I woke up the next day remembering nothing but my boyfriend told me about how he had to carry me home cause I was losing consciousness and how I could barely get words out. The next day I couldn't even stomach water and was vomiting for a whole 24 hours. I know it's not just cause I was drunk cause I hadn't had much to drink and I completely blacked out, I was also more ill than I've ever been before.

Me and my friend were both spiked and might possibly have been from a “special” drink the bartender made my friend to sober up. We joined 2 American girls on the club cause they were looking at us. We only had 3 tequila shots and one vodka cranberry drink which for us doesn’t seem a lot. We both felt very weird and my friend seemed like she was “out of it” and couldn’t remember anything which is very unusual for her. She eventually got kicked out of the club and I had to follow her out and had to beg the security to get our coats from the cloakroom. When we were out she started vomiting on the streets and was unable to stand up for at least an hour and even though I was not doing well, I had to pull myself together and help her. We eventually went to one of my friend’s house and that’s when she pointed out that me and my friend were possibly spiked.

It was terrible, I woke up in the security room. Baring in mind I had only had 2 very light drinks and I am usually very good with alcohol and had eaten and drank plenty of water before hand. I was treated appallingly by the security. They were so harsh and non empathetic towards me and then just sent me out. Telling me I was asleep in the bathrooms. I was very scared and as a result of this occurrence I would never come to this club again and would also never recommend it to anyone! I was unsure of what I had been spiked by but I know my body and this was a horrible experience. I didn’t report the incident as I believe these kinds of incidents get brushed under the rug and therefore I believe lots of women/men go through this kind of thing and don’t feel brave enough to speak about due to it not being a major issue in the limelight of society. During the time when people were injecting people in clubs I didn’t go to a club for a whole year out of fear.

He was insisting I do these very strong Mexican tequila shots. I didn’t want to. I had planned on having one alcoholic drink I didn’t know him & I was getting weird vibes. I went to the loo mid way through dinner. It took a while there was a queue & it was a long way from the table. When I came back I swallowed the rest of my drink as I was keen to leave quickly. My throat started burning my head felt hot. I just stared in disbelief I said “ did you spike my drink” he tried to shush me. I said it again. Then said he just wanted me to try it. He’d ordered two shots & poured them in my drink. I was just shocked & scared I didn’t know if there was anything else in there.

I can't recall the events entirely but I remember blacking out not long after buying a cocktail from the bar. I didn't see who did it or what happened exactly, so I can't be sure of every detail. From what I can remember, we picked a song to play on karaoke, then moments later I blacked out and woke up in the hospital at one in the morning.

I remember everything very clearly during my night out, up until going to the bar for a second time paying for drinks, as my friends card declined. The next thing I remember is lying on a bathroom floor seeing my bag, trying to reach for it but unable to move. Second thing I remember is a bouncer telling me that I needed to contact someone (I checked my call history the next day and could see I’d been struggling to contact the person I wanted to, having called names with a similar starting letter to his). I then remember my friend coming and telling my other friend ‘why weren’t you with her’ (I must have ran to the bathroom to spew, to have not been with her). Fortunately the next thing I remember is waking up safe but in a panic from having not been able to remember anything other than these snippets. I had to travel back home to my town the next day and also did not stop being sick all day. Two days after, I decided to go to A&E where they checked my oxygen levels etc and had me speak to a safe guarding officer, however they could not test my blood for drugs which I would have liked for clarification. Although, I have been told it is unlikely that 4 double vodkas (which is what I had drank) would cause blackouts. I also had black tar/ coal looking stuff in my sick. I did tell the police however they would be unable to report it without evidence of drugs in my system which would have to be done by a medical professional within 12 hours so I am still a little disappointed I hadn’t gone sooner or on the evening to a hospital. This will probably play on my mind for a while bc I obviously could have died or picked up outside by someone pretending they knew who I was.
