A MAN has been arrested after two women allegedly had their drinks spiked at a new nightclub on the Isle of Wight. 
The incident was reported to have taken place last night (Friday) and into the early hours of this morning (Saturday) at Fever and Boutique nightclub in Newport.
Police have arrested a 30-year-old man in connection with the incident. He remains in custody at this time. 
The club opened in June on the former Wetherspoon/Chicago Rock site on Coppins Bridge.
A police spokesperson said: "We would urge anyone who witnesses any suspicious activity while on a night out to call police on 101. If you saw anything suspicious last night, then please contact us."
Officers have issued the following advice: 
• If you are out in a group, look after each other
• Don't leave your drinks unattended. Carry them with you when dancing and take turns to go to the loo
• Be wary of accepting drinks from strangers - if you have a drink bought for you, make sure you take it directly from the bar staff
• Keep an eye out for anyone in your group who appears more drunk than the amount of alcohol they have consumed would warrant - we all know our reaction to alcohol and if you or they feel ill or drunker than expected, your drink may have been tampered with - raise the alarm to someone straight away and head home.
