Warehouse Project to offer urine testing at events following the recent spate of spikings

In a move that is to be celebrated, The Warehouse Project has started to offer on-site urine testing for those that believe they have been spiked.

Sacha Lord is a key figurehead in the nightlife industry. He told The Independent newspaper that he has taken action to protect partygoers by providing urine testing in the case of any suggested spiking.
Halloween weekend saw the introduction of the tests.

There have been nationwide calls for action following the recent spate of ‘syringe spikings’. A call for an unprecedented boycott of clubs, in light of the safety concerns, has been lodged.

Over the past two months, almost 200 drink spiking incidents have been reported to the police, according to the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC).

“Our medics actually bought kits last week … it’s a little like a pregnancy kit, if I’m being honest,” Sacha Lord told The Independent.

“You can take a urine sample and tell exactly what is in that.”

Lord continued by explaining that he supports safety measures put in place to prevent the spikings.

“We’ve got a real education job to do here.”

“Ultimately, I just don’t think it’s right that a woman should feel protected by a bottle top on the night out.”
