A teenager has ­appeared in court after police seized drugs of the same kind as those linked to the death of a schoolgirl.

Marc Houston, 19, has been charged with drug offences in connection with the recovery of a bag of red-coloured ­ecstasy pills known as "mortal kombat".

Staff at the Liquid Rooms nightclub in ­Edinburgh called in ­police on Sunday.

Houston, from Glasgow, made no plea or declaration when he ­appeared at Edinburgh Sheriff Court and was released on bail.

His arrest was not being linked to the death of Regane MacColl, 17, from Clydebank, who died after taking a "mortal kombat" tablet at Glasgow nightclub The Arches on Saturday, February 1.
