The parents of a man who died from a drug overdose have pleaded with parents to 'please do all you can to protect children and families from the terrible evil of illegal drugs'.

Norma and Brian Jackson have spoken to hundreds of schoolchildren and college students since their son Nigel died in June 1991, and have now taken their fight to the front line.

The pair, from Hambleton, donated a search dog to Lancashire Police earlier this summer, and recently went to see springer spaniel Jac and his handler being officially licensed as a police search team.

They said: "We couldn't save the life of our only son Nigel, but we just hope Jack and the other search dogs can possibly help save lives.

"If you can do anything to help the police in the battle against drugs, then please do it."
