Woman suffers ‘horrific’ infection after taking ‘cannibal drug’
A woman has become the first named drug user in Britain to have fallen ill after taking krokodil — dubbed the world’s deadliest narcotic.
Emma Davies, 41, is said to have suffered “horrific” open sores after using the substance which is reportedly ten times stronger than heroin.
The drug — whose chemical name is desomorphine — has been branded “the world’s deadliest drug” after it first appeared in Russia.
Experts say it can cause large amounts of flesh to rot away with just one small injection.
